Secondary income was using a combination of optical character recognition and machine translation to prepare marksheets, certtificates and passport copies quickly in Russian for a few dozen students enrolling there. Such opportunities are highly unlikely to reoccur until the admission season next year.

Loan disbursement amounting to 1/7 th of assets will happen in a few days.
Equated monthly installments will constitute 19.37% of current monthly salary.
Various ways to account for it. I have added the disbursement amount and subtracted the total payment (principal+interest) from the AUMॐ which brings down the ॐ by ~5%. Interest rate is 16% p.a. and tenure is 4 years.
I won't swing until I see a fat pitch with a spread of atleast 2.7% going up to 5.55%.

You've this life so live it well, take out a loan but drink ghee, once the body is burnt to ashes, there is no re-entry

Loan:

Divided the amount taken out on loan into three equal parts and invested them into:

1. Dematerialized senior debentures of a private limited company with monthly coupon payments and 24 months tenure secured by pass through rights to the underlying land of 24 acres it is developing 1 km from a toll plaza. Spread: 8%

2. Becoming a limited partner in a limited liability partnership engaged in the activity of trading fruits and vegetables wholesale to university messes for daily meal preparation. Spread: 3.2%

3. Becoming a limited partner in a limited liabilty partnership constructing a warehouse for storage to be leased to company in the automotive parts manufacturing industry. Spread: 2% but the tenure matches the loan tenure exactly at 48 months in case I am not able to find a suitable investment after retiring from 2, I could prepay upto 25% of the loan amount after 12 months.

There is concentration risk as all three are in the same state.
There is fraud risk as that state is far away from the state I live in.
There is liquidity risk as I have to give a notice of 2 weeks to 2 months before retiring prematurely from the LLPs.
There is business risk as the store on the highway might not be profitable, the suppying fresh foodstuffs to college canteens might get stale by the time it reaches the chefs and we may not be able to make a profit resupplying at wholesale rates, the automotive industry might take a nosedive and our warehouse will stay tenantless.
There is no interest rate risk as the interest rate on my loan is fixed and monthly reducing with an option to prepay twice after 12 month intervals each.
There is no key man risk as the business model stands on its own without a charismatic promoter.

Income from 1 is taxed at my prevalent tax rate which is nil but will be 5% in the year to come.
Income from 2 and 3 is taxed at the level of the LLP so it is tax free in the hands of the partner to prevent double taxation.

Under the Yoke for November 2023

Post by fiby41 »

November 2023 was the most expensive month on record so it deserves going into the 91 line items of transactions:
Operating expenses were food at 19.5% and transportation at 15.09% of total expenses.
Remaining were financing expenses and charity.

Savings rate was 82.64% with 28 month rolling average at 88.74%
Savings growth was 5.33%
Expenses rose by 70% whereas income fell to 92.32% of October 2023.
Operating income (salary) was 66.6% of total income, the remaining being investing income.
Savings will last until November 2037 if I spend like I spent in November 2023.
Nearly one fifth of personal equity (assets minus liabilities) is currently liquid which will rise to one fourth by 9th December before being deployed for ~6 months.

Did not get refunded the tax deducted at source (TDS) back from the Income Tax Department although they did not demand more or dispute it.
Appeared for the CAT (common admission test) exam.

Finding tenants for dad's property is a hassle. It has most appeal as a weekend getaway due to proximity to the beach. Two reservations from booking website were duds- one cancelled and the other was a no show. Trying to get the word out by pitching office peeps and gym buffs free stay as loss leaders. Office peeps chickened out after booking this weekend citing the distance while gym folks couldn't be more exited for mid-December.

Diabetes possibly approaching from both sides of family so getting tested at every free opportunity I get: RBS 159, 90 and 111.

The agricultural investment vehicle I become a limited partner in exceeded the ₹100 crore mobilized funds mark which brought it under the purview of the Securities and Exchange Board of India who promptly froze its accounts yesterday for non-compliance with the SEBI collective investment scheme act. Let's see how this one ends. 9.58% of my total savings are in this LLP.

Got old phone repaired.

There is an iPhone 7 lying in the flat whose password father forgot, then the SIM expired of 3 months of no recharge so cannot receive OTP for resetting password. The phone was a gift, the SIM is registered on gifter's wife's name, and dad is deadbeat lethargic.

I had colated their earlier phones which have died from different places but mom sold them for scrap along with a speaker and a laptop before I could get them fixed so hope someone has repaired and is using them instead of leading to electronic waste :x

Average of the previous 30-months' savings rate is 87.11%.
Savings will exhaust on October 2028 if I spend like I spent in January 2024.
