British Empire (including the eastern part of what is now the United States) adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1752 (see the Calendar (New Style) Act 1750) by which time it was necessary to correct by 11 days. Wednesday, September 2, 1752 was followed by Thursday, September 14, 1752 to account for February 29, 1700 (Julian). After 1753, the British tax year in Britain continued to operate on the Julian calendar and began on 5 April, which was the "old style" new tax year of 25 March.
The new year for the English-speaking world then became 1 January, and the discrepancy between dates, which had grown from eleven to twelve days, was resolved when Parliament declared that 2 September 1752 was to be followed immediately by 14 September 1752.
