Biannual

Twice each year. It is used in business in a variety of circumstances. For example, a board of directors may meet or the company may distribute dividends biannually. Biennial means the same thing. See also: Quarter.

biennial

Occurring every 2 years. Contrast with biannual, which means occurring twice a year. (It's important to know the difference if an adjustable-rate mortgage provides for rate changes biannually or biennially.)
