PIEs for trustee investors
A portfolio investment entity (PIE) is a type of entity (such as a managed fund) that invests the contributions from investors in different types of investments. PIES came into existence on 1 October 2007. Eligible entities that elect to become a PIE will generally pay tax on investment income based on the prescribed investor rate (PIR) of their investors, rather than at the entity's tax rate. Trustees can collectively choose 0%, 10.5%, 17.5% or 28% to best suit the trust's beneficiaries.
