Many governments use April 1 as the beginning of the year. My budget at work starts April 1.

The UK government financial year is April - April which is a pain for me doing US taxes as my end of year statements for my UK pension and bank accounts come after April 1st.

Exactly my thinking, except I really did FIRE on April 1st. That's why I was "on to you". I knew the date exactly and was expecting some hi-jinks here.
