Dividend payments to shareholders on a recurring basis are known as interim dividends. Interim dividends typically aren't as large as dividend payments made after the end of financial year. Generally, when quarterly earnings results are reported, these payments are announced.

On the other side, a one-time payment of company assets, typically in the form of cash, to shareholders is known as a special dividend. The majority of special dividends are associated with a specific occasion and are usually larger than the regular dividends paid to shareholders.
