3165495 - The value of node "retained earnings" is incorrect in app "Balance Sheet/Income Statement – China"


For example, node "retained earnings" has three child nodes-"undistributed profits", "calculated profit" and "calculated loss", the total value of nodes "calculated profit" and "calculated loss" equals to "Profit & Loss".

So "undistributed profits" and "Profit & Loss" have been configured as FSV nodes in the "retained earnings" line item, but it is found that the value of retained earnings displayed in the report is incorrect.


  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open app "Balance Sheet/Income Statement – China" 
  2. Fill in the mandatory fields 
  3. Click "Go" and the value of node "retained earnings" is incorrect


Profit & Loss accounts configured in node Liab+Equity will be filtered out.


The right behavior is to configure the calculation node in the Liab+Equity to replace the Profit & Loss accounts.

Therefore, please configure "undistributed profits", "calculated profit" and "calculated loss" in Liab+Equity line item in SSCUI "102804-Define Form Structure for Financial Statement".
