A fiscal quarter is one of the four three-month periods that make up an organization’s fiscal year. The federal fiscal year begins in 1st October ending September 30th of the year numbered. But different organizations may decide on when to begin their fiscal year. Microsoft has since released their first quarter report of 2016, meaning the fiscal year began on 1st July.
