Fiscal Quarter

One fourth of the calendar that businesses use to calculate revenue and expenses. This may or may not correspond to a calendar quarter. For example, the first calendar quarter includes January, February and March because they are the first three months of the calendar year. However, if a business' fiscal year runs from October to September, the first fiscal quarter includes October, November and December.
