Other property income (OPI) represents gross operating surplus minus proprietor income. OPI includes consumption of fixed capital (CFC), corporate profits, and business current transfer payments (net). It includes income derived from dividends, royalties, corporate profits, and interest income. Thus, OPI provides a source of income for households, business, and governments. However, I-O models by default treat OPI as a leakage, meaning that any OPI generated as part of an analysis will not generate any additional effects. This is because the assumptions that income generated from OPI will go to recipients within the region and that those recipients will spend that income in a typical manner may not be valid.

OPI has also been referred to as Other Property Type Income (OPTI).
