reversal of non-recorded closing entry
Explanation:
Ecriture de clôture
Écriture passée par le comptable à la fin de l'exercice afin de virer les soldes des comptes de produits et de charges dans le compte sommaire des résultats et, de là, dans le compte avoir du propriétaire. Cette écriture sert aussi à virer les retraits et les apports dans le compte avoir du propriétaire.

Reversal of a closing entry/document that was not recorded in accounting. This would be a loss because that amt was not accounted for. Closing means end of financial year.

I agree with Tim insofar as I think the word order/meaning has got confused, and this should be "reversal, at year end, of an entry that was not actually recorded".

disagree  Tim Webb: Your translation does not seem to match your explanation. Would "reversing entries not recorded at year-end" be better?
