    Semi Annual Dates to cross over to next year

    I am trying to have excel return a Semi Annual date (my two dates are 1 April and 1 November) from a date in cell A1 but my current formula will not switch to the next year once I get to December. The year of my date only changes to my next Semi Annual date and year once I am in January of the next year.

    Example: Cell A1 Date: October 1, 2016 returns the correct Semi Annual date of November 1, 2016 based on the formula below:

    =IF(MONTH(A1)>4,DATE(YEAR(A1),11,1),DATE(YEAR(A1),4,1))

    Once the date is December 1, 2016 in cell A1 I would like it to return 1 April, 2017.

    Please let me know if you can help the formula works great except in December.

    If it's semi-anually, shouldn't it be April and October, instead of November?

    Just add a condition that checks for month = 12 and calculate the date accordingly.

    =IF(MONTH(A2)=12,DATE(YEAR(A2)+1,4,1),IF(MONTH(A2)>4,DATE(YEAR(A2),11,1),DATE(YEAR(A2),4,1)))
