MSSQL DATEADD to get last and first day of previous month minus 1 year


this statement gives me the first day of the previous month:

SELECT DATEADD(dd,-(DAY(DATEADD(mm,-1,getdate()))-1),DATEADD(mm,-1,getdate()))

and this one the last day:

SELECT DATEADD(dd,-(DAY(getdate())),getdate())


How can I take it a step further and get the first and last day of the previous month from last year?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

So ... since this is October 5, 2011, you would be looking for September 1st - 30th, 2010?

SELECT DATEADD(yy, -1, DATEADD(dd,-(DAY(DATEADD(mm,-1,getdate()))-1),DATEADD(mm,-1,getdate())))

SELECT DATEADD(yy, -1,DATEADD(dd,-(DAY(getdate())),getdate()))
