## Definition of Biweekly Payroll

Biweekly payroll refers to paydays that occur 26 times per year (52 weeks in a year divided by 2 weeks = 26 times per year). With 26 paydays in the year and 12 months in a year, some months will have 3 biweekly paydays since 26 paydays divided by 12 months = 2.16667 paydays per month.

## Definition of Semimonthly Payroll

Semimonthly payroll refers to paydays that occur 24 times per year (12 months in a year multiplied by 2 paydays per month = 24 paydays). With 52 weeks in a year and 12 months in a year, each semimonthly pay period will have on average 2.16667 weeks per semimonthly payday.

## Example of Biweekly Payroll

Let's assume that a company pays its employees biweekly on every other Friday. If a new employee agrees to an annual salary of \$52,000 the employee will be earning \$2,000 (\$52,000 divided by 26 paydays) during each biweekly pay period. The employee's pay records will indicate a gross salary of \$2,000 each biweekly payday.

## Example of Semimonthly Payroll

Now let's assume that another company pays its employees semimonthly on the 15th day and the last day of every month. If it hires a new employee at an annual salary of \$52,000 the employee will be earning \$2,166.67 (\$52,000 divided by 24 paydays) during each semimonthly pay period. The employee's pay records will indicate a gross salary of \$2,166.67 each semimonthly payday.
