Count rows in current financial year and compare to same time in previous financial year



I am relatively new to PowerBi and I have been looking to practice on some example data.


My aim is to count the number of rows in my dataset (Based on number of fires and there is 1 fire per row) in the current financial year to date and the same time in the previous financial year (FY runs from 1/4 to 31/3).


I have come across a previous chat which I have replicated the solution from in my own dataset successfully. However this was designed for calendar year and I would like to ammend it for financial year.


Any help on how to do this based on the below DAX would be greatly appreciated.


Total Sales =


YTD prods =


    [Total Sales],

    FILTER (


        'Calendar'[Year] = YEAR ( TODAY () )

            && 'Calendar'[Date] <= TODAY ()



LY YTD Sales =


    [Total Sales],

    FILTER (



            = YEAR ( TODAY () ) - 1

            && 'Calendar'[Date]

                <= EOMONTH ( TODAY (), -13 ) + DAY ( TODAY () )



Difference% =

DIVIDE([YTD prods] - [LY YTD Sales],[LY YTD Sales])
