    Here is my proposed translation
    Income= renta
    Revenue = ingreso
    Profit earning = ganancias provenientes de utilidades

    Those are good translations, but I think it greatly depends on usage, even the company's own usage on its balance sheets, as one might say ingresos and another utilidades, refering to income.

    Hi Kari. Based on the definition of liquid (fluid, in cash or easily convertible to cash) I would translate this term as "liquid and realized profits"

    Hope it helps
    Regards

    A profit in english would be considered to already be cash so you wouldn't say "liquid profit" because you would be saying "cashed in cash". On the other hand, if you have an asset, like a house or stocks, you could cash those in or "liquidate" them.

    With all due respect dear colleague, not all profits are liquid. There are also the so-called unrealized gains or profits also known as paper profits. For more detail I invite you to take a look at these web pages

    I tried to respond two times but was blocked for some reason. Thanks for the web sites. Liquid profits would be "cash" in laymens terms. I did find "liquid profits realized" on my site also.
