Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can get the local time of the SQL Server by using the getdate() system function.

SELECT getdate()

If you want to get UTC time use the getutcdate() system function.

SELECT getutcdate()

    You can also do this:

    SELECT CONVERT(datetime,

                   SWITCHOFFSET(CONVERT(datetimeoffset,

                                        MyTable.UtcColumn),

                                DATENAME(TzOffset, SYSDATETIMEOFFSET())))

           AS ColumnInLocalTime

    FROM MyTable

    I think you can use getdate() function which could get you with local time on SQL Server.
