    You need to do a journal to bring the asset up to its revalued amount as follows:

    Debit land and buildings £1,000,000
    Credit revaluation reserve £1,000,000

    Kind regards

    I think you need to debit non current assets with the amount of the increase in value. debit accumulated depreciation with the amount of depreciation applicable to date, and open a revaluation reserve account entering a credit for the total of the increase in value and the depreciation to date.
