An explanation of the 53-week year
Dividing the retail calendar into 52 weeks of seven days each, or 364 days, leaves an extra day each year to be accounted for. As a result, every five to six years a week is added to the fiscal calendar. This anomaly has most recently occurred in FY'00, FY'06 and FY'12, and will occur in FY'17.
