Take this simple MWE:


\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}

%opening
\title{Guide for 2017/8}
\author{Author}

\begin{document}
\date{}
\maketitle

\section{Guide}

\end{document}


Is it possible to have 2017/18 automatically set to the current year? So in this case it should be 2021/22.

Without additional packages, the following should do until the end of the century:


\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}

\newcounter{nextyear}
\setcounter{nextyear}{\year}

%opening
\title{Guide for \the\year/\thenextyear}
\author{Author}

\begin{document}
\date{}
\maketitle

\section{Guide}

\end{document}


Or a general solution with the datetime2 package:


\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}

\usepackage{datetime2}
\DTMsavenow{now}

%opening
\title{Guide for \DTMfetchyear{now}/\DTMtwodigits{\numexpr\DTMfetchyear{now}+1\relax}}
\author{Author}

\begin{document}
\date{}
\maketitle

\section{Guide}

\end{document}
