Assets are real accounts and according to accounting debit and credit rules.
Debit what comes in and credit what goes out.
Assets has debit account by nature so when there is an increase in assets it is debited to assets accounts
Liabilities are credit accounts because these are burden of the business to payback to their original owners that's why if liabilities increases it is credited to liablities accounts because according to rule mentioned above credit what goes out and liabilities are those items which ultimately need to go out from business at the time of dissolution of business.
---- The above so called rule is not accurate. It is entirely inaccurate to say that debit is what comes in and credit it what goes out. This can be proven quickly by looking at expense accounts. An expense to a company is something you "pay out", however all expense accounts have a DEBIT balance and are increased with Debits, not credits. Revenue is a CREDIT account (money received by the company, which is money coming IN) it is increased by a Credit, not a debit.
According to the accounting equation Assets = Liabilities + Owners Equity
When a company receives money for a service or sale, they will debit cash (to increase) and credit Revenue (to increase). In double entry accounting for every debit there is an equal credit.
Assets have a debit balance - Liabilities have a credit balance + owners equity also a credit balance
For example, if you have $19,000 in assets (debit balance) you need one or more credit balance accounts that equal this total.
This could be for example
$19,000 (assets) = $5,000 (liabilities) + $14,000 (owners equity)
Intangible assets are assets like other assets and have debit balance so these are also increased by debit only and reduce by credit.

Intangible assets are also assets like any other assets so if all other assets have debit as a default balance then intangible assets also have debit as default balance. Like Goodwill etc.

The exact definition of debit is The amount entered on the left side of the account. Depending on what account a debit is being entered in, makes the difference as to what happens on the Balance Sheet. An Asset that has a debit balance is increased by a debit, thus increasing assets. A liability (which generally has a credit balance) will be decreased by a debit. Hence, debiting assets such as Cash, Accounts Receivable, Supplies, Equipment, etc will increase Assets on the balance sheet. Debiting liability accounts such as accounts payable, notes payable, etc, will "decrease" said liability therefore decreasing liabilities on the balance sheet.
A sales refund will reduce income (debit to Sales Returns) and assets (credit to cash). A debit to Depreciation Expense and a credit to Accumulated Depreciation will reduce assets and net income.
