Year to date

What is year-to-date metric?

Year-to-date (YTD) is a figure that marks the period from the beginning of the current year up to the present date. Often used for financial and payroll reporting, it can, for example, provide a snapshot of business performance or an overview of employee gross pay over a particular period.

Much of the data that organizations are required to track is captured using the year-to-date system. This includes gross pay, net pay, deductions, benefits, taxes, expense reimbursement, accrued vacation and sick leave. You can also use an HR solution such as Multiplier to automatically track key data across a certain period.

Year-to-date measurements typically use the calendar year. However, it’s important to note that they can also be based on the fiscal or financial year which is used in government accounting and differs from country to country. For example, in the US the fiscal year runs from October 1 to September 30 and companies may use these dates to track year-to-date data.
