Yes! Moneydance permits the creation of a data file specific fiscal year. (In other words, you can have one file to track finances for your company's fiscal year which is Sept 1- August 31, and one to track your personal finances from January 1 -December 31).

To set a fiscal year open the Moneydance preferences menu, available under the Moneydance menu on a Mac and the File menu on the Linux or Windows system. The “General” tab permits your to set a fiscal year. Current fiscal year options include the first day of each month, as well as April 6 and May 6.
