I remember hearing that business-wise, it's the three months before the actually date stated.

If my memory is correct, that would mean Q1 2014 is Oct-Dec 2013, yes?

I've won Early Access for Carmageddon: Reincarnation and it states Q1 2014.

Business-wise, I remember hearing that actually means the end of 2013.

I could be wrong, though.

Nah there are quarters and fiscal quarters, fiscal Q1 (usually) starts in April and runs to April the next year.

I was just about to point this out. It's never made sense to me (although to be fair I've never taken the time to learn about why it is like this). :laugh:

The year is split into 4 quarters,

  • Q1 (quarter1) is Jan-Mar
  • Q2 (quarter2) is Apr-Jun
  • Q3 (quarter3) is Jul-Sep
  • Q4 (quarter4) is Oct-Dec

 

The above is what we follow in UK banking business, I know other countries start their quarter based on the fiscal year

Think about it, 12 months... what number can you multiply by 4 to get 12? that's it!! 3 so a quarter is 3 months long
