Dividend Income


I receive dividends in EUR, USD and CAD. My Nordic companies pay annual dividends which means big one-time payments. And those payments may arrive different month year to year. These facts make tracking my progress month to month, year to year, a bit messy, unless I made a couple compromises.
I report all annual payments in April. Dividends arrive from late March to early May, so I consider this accurate enough.
I ignore currency fluctuations. I report all dividends, EUR, USD and CAD with 1:1:1 ratio.

  1. Wow, really impressive numbers here. With the Nordic payouts happening all at once it's almost like and annual bonus. Imagine ten years from now when your April payment is $10k or $20k!. Keep up the good work.

    1. DD, those Nordic payouts certainly are like big annual bonuses. But going forward their importance should gradually go down, as my new purchases will be focusing on companies which pay quarterly or even monthly.
