T-SQL query - List this financial years transactions

I would like to list all transactions this financial year (from 31 March).

I have tried something like:-

SELECT     InvDate
FROM         CustInv
WHERE     (InvDate > DATEADD(m, CASE WHEN datepart(m, Getdate()) > 3 THEN 4 ELSE - 8 END - DATEPART(M, GETDATE()), DATEADD(d, 1 - DATEPART(d, GETDATE()),
                      GETDATE())))

However although the date I am getting is 1st April it also includes hours, minutes and seconds - In some cases InvDate is like 2012-04-01 00:00:00.000 and if I am comparing this to above it is not going to include this date.

I guess I could subtract hours, minutes and nanoseconds in the same way as above but thought there might be an easier way.

Since your financial year always start on April 1, you just have to find the proper year - current year or last year.

SELECT   InvDate
FROM     CustInv
WHERE  InvDate >= CONVERT (SmallDateTime, CASE WHEN MONTH(GetDate()) > 3 THEN Convert (varchar(4), YEAR(GetDate())) + '/04/01'
                            ELSE Convert (varchar(4), YEAR(GetDate()) -1) + '/04/01' END)

Note: If InvDate column in CustInv table is DateTime or SmallDateTime, then above CONVERT can be removed to make it look simpler.

Thanks,
Harish

It might be best if you do it in a separate step (no points please) as in:

DECLARE @FromDate date =       
            CASE
                  WHEN MONTH(GETDATE()) BETWEEN 1 AND 3 THEN CAST(YEAR(GETDATE()) AS char(4)) + '0401'
                  ELSE CAST(YEAR(GETDATE() + 1) AS char(4)) + '0401'
            END
DECLARE @ToDate date = DATEADD(DAY, -1, DATEADD(Year, 1, @FromDate))

...
      
WHERE     InvDate BETWEEN @FromDate AND @ToDate

Easiest to me is to force the time to 00:00:00.000:


WHERE     (InvDate > DATEADD(m, CASE WHEN datepart(m, Getdate()) > 3 THEN 4 ELSE - 8 END - DATEPART(M, GETDATE()), DATEADD(d, 1 - DATEPART(d, GETDATE()),
                      DATEADD(DAY, DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, GETDATE()), 0))))  --<<-- reset time on GETDATE() to 00:00:00.000
