Perform a calculation inside dynamic text

I am trying to create a dynamic text box as a map label, and it needs to show the <last year> - <current year>, so the text today should look like 2016-2017.


I have found this below snippet is correct in displaying 2017, but I am unable to work out how to manipulate the below code to subtract 1 from the figure of 2017, in order to display last year.


<dyn type="date" format="yyy"/>


Any ideas? I would love for there to be a pythonic solution to my dilemma... I just don't know if that would even be possible in a text box.
