For me it's clear that fiscal years may have different start and end date compared to calendar years.
For example the fiscal year 2015 may begin on 2014-12-01 and end on 2015-11-30. The fiscal and calendar year have the same number of days (365).
But what's the best way to handle fiscal month?
When my fiscal months should begin on the 25th of the previous month, when does it end? For example for the fiscal month February 2015, the start date is January 25 and the end date could be
- February 24th. But then this month has 31 days, but the calendar month February 2015 has 28 days.
- February 22nd which has the same number of days (28) as the calendar month. But the the next month (March) begins on February 23rd
