This sounds like a good advice.
Thank you all.

The term "fiscal year" would be better rephrased as "financial year"

Bug description:
IMHO naming the year of accounting after the fiscal aspect is wrong.
Indeed, nothing stops you from basing your accounting on a financial period that does not match the fiscal schedule.
In France for example, you are allowed to start your accounting any month of the year, but the taxe scheduleis based on the calendar year.
Its now too late to change this before v6 because translations have begun, but it could be considered for 6.1 or later.
