The phrase should read "Reserves and balance brought


Explanation:
forward"; i.e., after allocating reserve funds, the balance is carried over into the next year. (The expression you're looking for is not "à nouveau" but "report à nouveau").

retained earnings


Explanation:
The whole phrase is "report à nouveau" and it's the amount of prior year profits/losses carried over and not distributed, or as F. Sylvain says in his Dictionnaire de la Comptabilité :

RETAINED EARNINGS
(...)
N.B. En France et en Belgique, les bénéfices des exercices antérieurs qui n'ont pas été distribués ou affectés à un compte de réserve de même que les pertes qui n'ont pas été compensées par des prélèvements opérés sur les bénéfices, les réserves et le capital sont connus sous le nom de "report à nouveau".
