Income for tax purposes from ETF distributions with record date 1 July 2019

What is the date for tax purposes for recording income received from a trust? I read this statement elsewhere 'Distributions received from managed investments and
listed trusts were recognised when the Fund had a present entitlement to the income'. However despite the date record date for entitlement for iShares distributions being 1 July 2019, ShareSight are putting the income into the 2018-19 FY. If I had sold the shares on 30 June I wouldn't have received any income so I would have thought that the record date for the distribution would be the correct date to use and therefore the income will be recognised in 2019-20FY. Any ideas?
