Hi,

I need a function which calculates the fiscal year and returns true or false based on the date passed. Our system financial fiscal year is Apr 01 - Mar 31.

For ex. Current year is 2013. If the passed date is 2012-12-12 (YYYY-MM-DD) then the function should return true. If the passed date is 2012-01-12 (YYYY-MM-DD) then the function should return false.

Thanks in advance.

Bit Correction here:

For ex. Current year is 2013. If the passed date is 2012-12-12 (YYYY-MM-DD) then the function should return false. If the passed date is 2011-12-12 (YYYY-MM-DD) then the function should return true.

public static Boolean fiscal(String date){
     Calendar now = Calendar.getInstance();
     int year=now.get(Calendar.YEAR) - (now.get(Calendar.MONTH) < 4?1:0);
     String start=year + "-04-01";
     String end=(year+1) + "-03-31";
     return !(date.compareTo(start)>=0  && date.compareTo(end) <= 0);
    }
