You can set up a simple table with quarter end dates and then use a vlookup formula to find your result:

Table (A1 to A4)
31/03/2014
30/06/2014
30/09/2014
31/12/2014

Date in D3, formula:

=VLOOKUP(D3,$A$1:$A$4,1)

I have deliberately left the last parameter of the lookup blank so it finds a close match without going beyond the date being looked up.

Thanks
