Calendar week cut-off

I am very much a newbie and I am trying to figure out how to get the yearly cut-off dates correct in my calendar. Here is my pre-defined data-set that I have received help building;

I am using  a week-counter for the period in between the below two dates. Basically:

ArticleStartDate = Mon Jan 1st

ArticleEndDate = Mon Jan 14th

= 2 weeks, with count of 1 for calendar week 1 and 2 respectively.

Using this logic we have defined the calendar below to not count any week with an ArticleStartDate on a Wednesday or later as current week. Please find the script relating to this below. My problem is this; Any week-count is correct using this logic up until the cut-off between a Fiscal Year or Fiscal Quarters. Good example is this; Our fiscal year ends 30 Sept. This date occurred on a Monday in 2013. I would like to use the same logic for this cut-off as for the ArticleStartDate and ArticleEndDate, basically the week starting on Monday Sept 30 should be included in Fiscal year 2014/2015 instead of (as it is now) 2013/2014 (i.e. Tuesday Oct 1st would count as StartDate and since this is before Wednesday it should therefore be counted as current week being First week of FY 2014/2015).

If anyone can find the time to help me with this problem I would be forever grateful

Best regards
