English translation:final overall breakdown; (current) balances for all accounts [or: "for full settlement"]
Explanation:
"We thank you in advance for kindly forwarding to us immediately, or absolutely as soon as possible, your Final Overall Breakdown, indicating the [current] balances for all of the accounts relating to the above-mentioned matter."

A couple of notes: In French business usage, "en urgence" = "immediately," and "dès que possible" = "as soon as possible." The writer of your sentence is trying, somewhat awkwardly, to emphasize the time-sensitive nature of his/her request.

As indicated above, the phrase "solde de tout compte" = "balances for all accounts." However, your writer may be abbreviating the standard phrase "pour solde de tout compte," which means "for full settlement." The rest of the letter should tell you which meaning is intended here.
