first of month:
select dateadd(day, 1-datepart(day, getdate()), getdate())

first of quarter:
select dateadd( month,  1-datepart(month, getdate()) % 3   , dateadd(day, 1-datepart(day, getdate()), getdate()))

DECLARE @QBegin datetime

SET @QBegin = CONVERT(varchar, GetDate(), 101)
SET @QBegin = DATEADD(month, -(MONTH(@QBegin) % 3) + 1, @QBegin)
SET @QBegin = DATEADD(day, -DAY(@QBegin) + 1, @QBegin)
