Where is the best place to input my rentals and businesses that produce income? 

Answer: You can enter Rental Income and Business income in the client’s Net Worth by adding investment properties or other assets. This will allow for the most accurate tax treatment. 


I do not have the "Add Income" button, how do I add the income?

Answer: When the "goals based planning method" is selected, RightCapital will remove the "add income" input as it will not be used in future cash flow projections. To add additional income sources, change the Planning Method to "Cash Flow" or "Modified Cash Flow" in the Gear icon > Settings tab within the client plan. 


How can I input tax-free income?

Answer: The "Other Income" card will have a "taxes" dropdown menu that allows advisors to choose between a variety of options including tax free income.


How can I illustrate clients living off investment income in retirement?

Answer: To use taxable investment account income to fund cash flow needs in retirement, rather than it being saved and reinvested, simply check the "Distribute investment income from taxable account after retirement" box within the Client Plan > Gear Icon > Settings > Methodology tab.
