Reserve & surplus
amounts retained in the business and not distributed to owners. Reserves can be:

* Profits made and not passed on to owners. These are some times known as retained earnings.
* Capital reserves which can not be passed on to owners and represent the perceived increase in valuation of some fixed assets.
