To get the next year in PHP, you can use the date() function along with the strtotime() function. Here is an example:

1
2
3
4
$nextYear = strtotime('+1 year');
$nextYearFormatted = date('Y', $nextYear);

echo $nextYearFormatted; // Output: 2021 if today is 2020


In this example, strtotime('+1 year') returns a Unix timestamp representing the current date plus one year. Then, date('Y', $nextYear) formats that timestamp as a four-digit year. Finally, the result is echoed out, which will be the next year.
