Generally, revenues (sales, fees earned) will increase a corporation's stockholders' equity and its assets.

More specifically, revenues will increase the retained earnings section of stockholders' equity. The assets that usually increase are cash or accounts receivable. However, it is possible that another asset would increase or that a liability would decrease.

Revenues are also reported as the top line on the income statement.
