The balance in the Retained Earnings Account is not rolled forward from one year to the next.

When the last period of the current fiscal year is closed and the retained earnings account is queried it does not reflect the net balance rolled over . This is because the retained earnings account is updated by Oracle General Ledger to reflect the net balance that is rolled over from the previous year only when the first period of a new fiscal year is opened .
