significant estimates/estimations used
Explanation:
It means the estimated figures used in establishing the accounts. "retenue" is a bit like a "candidature retenue", ie not rejected, since they could choose between several possible approaches.

Do I smell an auditor's report? If so they're pretty standard, have a look at any bilingual annual report (or ask youyr clients if they've got last year's as the basic paragraphs rarely change).
Good luck
