Your prescribed investor rate (PIR) is the tax rate you need to pay on your New Zealand investments to Inland Revenue (IR) when investing in a portfolio investment entity (PIE). Some managed funds are a type of PIE.

To calculate your PIR, you’ll need to answer some questions about your income over the last two years. Go to Account > Tax Details in Sharesies, and under ‘Select your PIR’ select ‘answer these questions’.

You need to make sure your elected PIR is correct at all times.
