Following our discussion of revenue. This section will cover another part of income for a company, i.e., 'Other income.'
Other income generally refers to income earned by a company other than through its common operations. It is income earned through activities rather than core business operations such as gain on disposal of assets, interest income, dividend income, etc.
For example, for a manufacturing firm, interest earned on money invested in bank or equity dividends is an example of "Other Income". However, in the case of financial institutions, interest income is not classified as other income since its core business operation is earning interest on the loans advanced.
