Utilities for managing the fiscal calendar
fiscalyear is a small, lightweight Python module providing helpful utilities for managing the fiscal calendar. It is designed as an extension of the built-in datetime and calendar modules, adding the ability to query the fiscal year and fiscal quarter of a date or datetime object.
fiscalyear provides several useful classes.
The FiscalYear class provides an object for storing information about the start and end of a particular fiscal year.
>>> from fiscalyear import * >>> a = FiscalYear(2017) >>> a.start FiscalDateTime(2016, 10, 1, 0, 0) >>> a.end FiscalDateTime(2017, 9, 30, 23, 59, 59)
The FiscalYear class also allows you to query information about a specific quarter.
>>> a.q3.start FiscalDateTime(2017, 4, 1, 0, 0) >>> a.q3.end FiscalDateTime(2017, 6, 30, 23, 59, 59)
These objects represent the standalone FiscalQuarter class.
>>> b = FiscalQuarter(2017, 3) >>> b.start FiscalDateTime(2017, 4, 1, 0, 0) >>> b.end FiscalDateTime(2017, 6, 30, 23, 59, 59) >>> a.q3 == b True >>> b in a True
The start and end of each quarter are stored as instances of the FiscalDateTime class. This class provides all of the same features as the datetime class, with the addition of the ability to query the fiscal year and quarter.
>>> c = FiscalDateTime.now() >>> c FiscalDateTime(2017, 4, 8, 20, 30, 31, 105323) >>> c.fiscal_year 2017 >>> c.quarter 3 >>> c.next_quarter FiscalQuarter(2017, 4)
If you don’t care about the time component of the FiscalDateTime class, the FiscalDate class is right for you.
>>> d = FiscalDate.today() >>> d FiscalDate(2017, 4, 8) >>> d.fiscal_year 2017 >>> d.prev_fiscal_year FiscalYear(2016)
fiscalyear has no dependencies, making it simple and easy to install. The recommended way to install fiscalyear is with pip.
$ pip install fiscalyear
