Thanks for getting back to us, @nycte!


Yes, the Fiscal Year is a one-year period that starts on the first day of any month. This applies to QuickBooks Desktop, as well as in QuickBooks Online. 


Here's how to set your Fiscal Year in QuickBooks Online:

  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Select Account and Settings.
  3. Select Advanced.
  4. In the Accounting section, verify that the setting in the First month of fiscal year field is correct, or select Edit ✎ to change the setting.
  5. Select Save.
  6. Click Done.

The screenshot below shows you the last four steps.
