6. Income: Introduction

Mclowd allows you to record income to the Fund in various forms:


Currently Mclowd only allows Chess Depository Interests (CDI) and Stapled Securities to be entered as Equities. The income from these investments therefore must be entered as dividends. The income is actually a distribution, usually allocated after year end into various categories that are not allowed for in the income categories provided when entering dividend income.

Please contact the Mclowd support team for assistance to enter CDI and Stapled Security income.

To enter income received, click the INCOME tab.

Mclowd displays the Income button menu and, if you have previously entered income receipts, a list of previous entries of income. Transactions will be grouped according to income type..
