German term or phrase: überjährig
I'd be very grateful for help with the full sentence from a Swiss business tax return:
"Satzbestimmender Reingewinn bzw. Verlust (Ziffe5r 7; bei unter- oder überjährigem Geschäftsjahr: siehe Wegleitung)"
This is certainly not proving to be my forte!

longer than one year / exceeding one year
Explanation:
unter- oder überjähriges Geschäftsjahr = fiscal/accounting period shorter or longer than one year (which can occur in case of period adjustments, e.g. due to changes in accounting policies)

In any event, the German \"unter- oder überjähriges Geschäftsjahr\" is not that elegant a solution - they should have talked about a \"unter- oder überjährige(r) Berichtsperiode/-zeitraum\".
