Q & D Results: Fiscal vs. Calendar

A recent Quick & Dirty Survey asked: Do you use a calendar year or fiscal year in your accounting? If fiscal, when does your year begin?

  • 63% of respondents use a calendar year
  • 37% of respondents use a fiscal year

Respondents using a fiscal year begin the year on a variety of dates: March 1, June 1, August 1, October 1, and December 1.
