I worked in a project in big corporation where they were using a fiscal calendar. We calculated the fiscal dates using the Oracle database function "ADD_MONTHS". In that scenario, the fiscal year began on 1st of March. So we had to substract two months to the calendar date to get the fiscal date.

SELECT any_date calendar_date, ADD_MONTHS (any_date, -2) fiscal_date

In your scenario, where the fiscal year begins on the first Monday of April the formula will be a little bit different. What I would do is something like this:

1. Calculate the "day_gap" for each year between your fiscal date and the calendar year (depending on the number of years to store, it may be easier to do that manually than finding a formula).
2. Substract the "day_gap" to each date in order to get the fiscal date (e.g. fiscal date 1-Jan-2009 will be the first Monday of April, 2-Jan-2009 the first Tuesday or April and so on).

That should make it. Let me know if you need further help.

Best regards,
