We cannot call them liabilities or assets because the proprietor withdraws from his capital. They are just withdrawals and they are decreased from capital by debiting against the capital account.

It is the amount of cash or value of goods within drawn from the business by the proprietor for his personal use. It is deducted from the capital. So we cannot say it is assets or liabilities, vwe say it's accounting. :)

Drawings are the opposite of capital, and such as they are not liabilities! Drawings means that the owner is pulling back his investment in assets. Drawings, in fact are withdrawals of capital invested, and because of that they are called drawings.
