You can use the questions below to work out the prescribed investor rate (PIR) that applies to you. For example, you invested in a multi-rate PIE in June 2021. The PIR applying to your investments for the current tax year, ending 31 March 2024, is based on your income for each of the last 2 tax years, which ended:

  • 31 March 2022
  • 31 March 2023.

Once you've worked out your PIR, make sure you give it to your PIE.

Tax residency status

Before answering these questions, you'll need to know your tax residency status.

Keep in mind that if you're an individual and have a 4-year temporary tax exemption, you can use a 0% PIR if you invest in a zero-rate PIE.
