What Is Passive Income

What Is Passive Income?

Passive income is the term used to describe additional earnings or income streams which can provide additional finances for you and your business projects. Passive income generally is used to describe a ‘side business’ which can be relatively easy to set up and provide a stable additional income on top of your active salary.

Passive income for some is an additional financial safety net, this is down to the fact that one person may have multiple passive incomes across multiple platforms/industries, etc. meaning that when one income is reduced or stopped, other sources of income are still in place.



Is Passive Income Taxable?

Benefits Of Passive Income

Passive income will prove to be an ‘extra’ source of income with little to no input from you. These forms of income can greatly improve your overall finances and provide a healthier financial situation.

Having multiple streams of income can provide an additional financial safety net. This means if one income stream stops, if you have multiple streams you will keep on earning money.

Understanding Passive Income

There are three fundamental classes of income: active income, passive income, and portfolio income.

Passive income has been a commonly used term as of late. Conversationally, it’s been used to characterize cash being earned normally with practically zero work being done by the person.

Famous kinds of passive income incorporate real estate, distributed lending, and dividend stocks.

More recently the term has been used to describe methods used to generate additional income streams to boost one’s finances. Although this is broadly correct the finer details of passive income can be quite complex.

If you are looking for additional income streams but are not sure how you may be affected by tax and other factors, we would strongly suggest seeking legal advice prior to partaking in any form of passive earnings.
