I need help in caluculating fiscal year based on a meetingdate as well the date when the user is running the query

like I have the formula to caluculate the fiscal years based on meetingdate as below:

begin
declare @meetingdate as varchar(20)
set @meetingdate='02/20/2006'
print YEAR(DATEADD(month, 6 + DATEDIFF(month, 0,
@meetingdate), 0))
end
 
and the result is 2006 and now the user wants to compae this with the date he's running the query say for example if he's running the above query after the fiscalyear which is on 07/01/2013 then the result of the fiscalyear should be 2007 and if he's running it before like 6/13/2013 then the result should be 2006.He wants the results based on the fiscalyears of the meetingdate but compare with when he's running the query also.  I hope I explained it well if not I can kindly let me know.

begin
declare @meetingdate as varchar(20)
set @meetingdate='02/20/2006'
print YEAR(@meetingdate) + CASE WHEN MONTH(getdate()) >=7 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END
end


Or, to avoid a CASE (or IF):

print YEAR(@meetingdate) + ((MONTH(getdate()) + 6) / 12 )

begin
declare @meetingdate as varchar(20)
declare @getdate as varchar(20)
set @meetingdate='02/27/2012'
set @getdate='06/27/2012'
print YEAR(@meetingdate) + ((MONTH(@getdate) + 6) / 12 )
end

I get 2013 where I need to get this as 2012 as fiscalyear starts with 07/01

but using your case statement worked. I am just using what you sent without using my brain which I should I guess:-)

begin
declare @meetingdate as varchar(20)
declare @getdate as varchar(20)
set @meetingdate='02/27/2012'
set @getdate='06/27/2012'
print YEAR(@meetingdate) + CASE WHEN MONTH(@getdate) >=7 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END
end

result 2012

also I am using getdate as a variable for testing for the while

year(<<your-date>>) + (month(<<your-date>>) / 7) as [Fiscal Yr]

with cte as (
       /* just to produce a range of dates */
	select 1 as mnths, getdate() as dt
	union all 
	select mnths + 1 , dateadd(month,(mnths+1),getdate())
    from cte 
	where mnths <= 18
)

select
  cte.mnths
, cte.dt
, convert(varchar(10), cte.dt, 102)  as [yyyy.mm.dd]
, year(cte.dt) + (month(cte.dt) / 7) as [Fiscal Yr]
from cte
