Companies typically confirm the budgets available for different lines of business and different corporate priorities, three to six months before the end of their fiscal year (during their third quarter).
Many large buying decisions are likely to be made during this period. So for a company whose fiscal year end is December, the key decsion-making period is from July to September.
On Databook, it's easier to find both the date when the company's fiscal year ends and details of the current quarter.
To find these details for your accounts:
- Search for a company
- On the Overview page, look at the Current Quarter panel
