SQL – How to get current financial year using SQL

The following SQL shows how to get the current financial year using SQL.

This assumes that the financial year for your country is 1 July – 30 June.

This SQL query uses

  • GETDATE to get the current date
  • MONTH to turn the date into the month number (e.g. 5)
  • YEAR to turn the date into the year number (e.g. 2017)
  • CAST to convert the number to a string
SELECT 
CASE WHEN MONTH( GETDATE() ) <= 6 THEN
CAST( YEAR(GETDATE() ) - 1 AS varchar(4) ) + '/' + CAST( YEAR(GETDATE()) AS varchar(4) ) /* 2016/2017 */
ELSE
CAST( YEAR(GETDATE() ) AS varchar(4) ) + '/' + CAST( YEAR(GETDATE()) + 1 AS varchar(4) ) /* 2017/2018 */
END AS Current_Financial_Year
