    Capitalization of fiscal year

    Hello!

    Within a paragraph of a quarterly report, is Fiscal Year 2018 capitalized or should it be written in lower case, fiscal year 2018?

    Within a sentence within a paragraph, I would say lower case.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That is something that should be specified in your own company's style guide. Every company has a different combination of what they capitalize and what they don't, which types of writing follows the AP Stylebook and which deviates to their own norm.

    Your corporate communications department will have that - and if you're drafting it for someone else, they can make those updates themselves.

    If it's your company and you're writing it, then you can decide, but you should note your decisions and rationale so that you do the same thing in future publications.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
