Valuation
Explanation:
This is taken directly from Schaefer's Wirtschaftswoerterbuch German/English

Wertansatz m

(com) amount stated
(ReW) valuation (eg, of fixed assets; § 40 HGB)

In your case, I believe "valuation" is correct, ie. Valuation of certain entries in the year-end financial statement.

Good luck!!
