SDU Tools: Start of Year, End of Year in SQL Server T-SQL

I mentioned in my last two SDU_Tools posts that I get really good feedback all the time from users of our free SDU Tools for developers and DBAs, but none more than when we have more and more date and time functions. Yet another pair of functions that we added in v19 that was recently shipped was StartOfYear and EndOfYear.

We had feedback that even though we had StartOfFinancialYear and EndOfFinancialYear, we didn't have just StartOfYear and EndOfYear. So we've fixed that. These are simple scalar functions that take a single date parameter, and return the date for the start of the calendar year and the end of the calendar year that contain the date provided.

You can use our tools as a set or as a great example of how to write functions like these.
