Fiscal Quarters

A company's fiscal year outlines its fiscal (financial) quarters dates. That means that fiscal quarters and quarter reporting dates may differ for each company. But usually, financial quarters end on the last day of a calendar month and start on the first day of a calendar month. A fiscal or financial quarter takes 3 months, so it is approximately 91 days long, the same as the calendar quarter, dividing calendar months into 4 equal sets.

Historical Origin of Calendar Quarters

Calendar quarters approximately match 4 seasons. The starts of calendar quarters roughly correspond to 2 equinox and 2 solstice days, when the plane of Earth's equator maximally aligns or excurses with the center of the Sun's disk (ecliptic).
