Effect on P&L

...or maybe "effect on the balance sheet"; I'm not aware of any more "official" or specific expression - this would be my bet.

agree  RobinB: or: "effect on earnings" (or simply "earnings/P&L effect"), but *not* on the balance sheet, which doesn't involve earnings. I don't like "impact" because it often has negative connotations.
