From the Foster Global website:

April 1st is the first day that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will accept new H-1B visa petitions for the coming fiscal year. April may seem like a long way off, but if your organization relies on skilled foreign workers, then you need to begin preparations now.

In 2015, during the first week of the filing period, USCIS received approximately 172,500 petitions, each seeking one of only 85,000 H-1B visa numbers available under the annual quota.

The annual quota will likely be reached in the first week that new petitions are accepted, and a lottery will be applied to select petitions that will be allocated an H-1B number.
