Bus/Financial - Accounting / financial statements
English term or phrase: brought forward
The owner’s capital is usually analysed into its component parts:
Capital as at the beginning of the accounting period (i.e. capital ‘brought forward’)
Add additional capital introduced during the period
Add profit earned during the period
Less drawings
Capital as at the end of the accounting period (i.e. capital ‘carried forward’)

Brought forward means ‘brought forward from the previous period’. Carried forward means ‘carried forward to the next period’. The carried forward amount at the end of one period is also the brought forward amount for the next period.
