How many meetings between now and then?

@Awex They meet once a month. On the first Tuesday of the month (excluding January) outdated!

Since I’m commenting already: Q3 in Australia is Jan-March (for the 2024 Financial year) which confused me a bit, bc here he’s using October/calendar year q3

@Gen actually not anymore they don't. Starting this year it's 8 meetings a year:

Huh, had never thought about financial year quarters. All economic data in Australia seems to be labelled with calendar year quarters.

@chrisjbillington Yeah I thought that was the case.

@chrisjbillington Oh wow! Shows how little attention I've been paying to it this year. Thanks for correcting me

I think in general the financial year quarters are needlessly confusing, but particularly with accounting stuff it comes up (e.g. just filled out my Q3 BAS)
