Well this income report is a bit late but I thought it would be a good idea to get this one up anyway for a few reasons:
- Get a benchmark of 2018 so I can compare later in later years
- Start the record of the income reports
- Start to work out this report’s layout
- Keep the momentum going on this blog
OK lets get into it.
I’m planning to split this report into two parts – passive or investment income and non-employment or side hustle income. I want to capture my passive income as it increases over time until it gives me complete financial freedom. I also want to track my non-employment and side hustle income to give an idea of where extra income is coming from. Also it gives an idea of when I have enough income to quit a full time job and gain some more freedom!
|APN AREIT Fund||$53.32|
|APN Asian AREIT Fund||$54.56|
|Charter Hall PFA Fund||$115.65|
I get monthly distributions from some property funds – APN and Charter Hall have been my choices. I chose these funds for their monthly distributions.This gives me a way to get some regular income and smooth out the big half-yearly dividend waves. I’ve held the APN funds for just over a year and I’ve been reasonably happy with their performance, nothing stellar but always consistent. I only recently bought into the Charter Hall PFA fund. But it has a higher return so I shall keep an eye on it over the coming months.
This month I was lucky enough to receive a big dividend from Whitefield. Whitefield is probably my favourite LIC I have invested in, due to its focus on the Industrials sector and industrials index benchmark.
Side Hustle Income
This month I trialed the Beem It service which provides a way to instantly transfer between Australian bank accounts. I seems to be a competitor to the Osko/PayId platform. Either way they were running some referral promotions and I got a bit of cash. Can’t see myself continuing to use this service however.
A total of $692.28 this month.
Not bad! Helps with the increased Christmas spending in December. Of course, that has been greatly increased by a nice dividend from Whitefield. That will be nice to receive every December!
So that’s the first income report, I plan to add some more posts for each of the investments and side hustles from which I have received income. I am open to any suggestions about what information I should show and the layout, so please leave a comment below.
