The period between the valuation date/transaction date and the beginning of the financial year is called a stub period. It is usually a fraction of a year or quarter. The stub period arises because valuations can be done throughout the year and not just at the end of a period.

A stub period can also arise if the valuation date and data of completion of the transaction are different.
