Find First and Last Day of the Current Quarter in SQL Server

I was recently working on a requirement where the user wanted a report with data from the First day to the Last Day of the current Quarter

Here's a simple way to find the Find First and Last Day of the current quarter in SQL Server 2005/2008

SELECT DATEADD(qq,DATEDIFF(qq,0,GETDATE()),0) as FirstDayOfQuarter

SELECT DATEADD(qq,DATEDIFF(qq,-1,GETDATE()),-1) as LastDayOfQuarter


FirstDayOfQuarter         LastDayOfQuarter

2009-04-01 00:00:00.000   2009-06-30 00:00:00.000

Thank you very much. Is there a easy way to get the first day and the last day of the previous quarter?

To get the First Day and Last Day of 'Last' quarter, try this query

SELECT DATEADD(qq,DATEDIFF(qq,0,GETDATE())-1,0) as FirstDayOfLastQuarter

SELECT DATEADD(qq,DATEDIFF(qq,0,GETDATE()),-1) as LastDayOfLastQuarter
