Writeup

In accounting, an increase in the value of an asset without an expenditure. For example, if a company spends money to renovate its office and that causes the value of the office to increase, this is not a writeup. A writeup, however, may occur if the value of the office increases for some other reason, such as gentrification. Writeups are most common during a period of price inflation in situations in which the company conducts accounting according to the fair market value of its assets.
