Investments in PIEs can be held by partnerships. Each partner of the investment has tax obligations in relation to their share of the income.

Investments should be split so that each partner can advise a multi-rate PIE of their IRD number and prescribed investor rate.

If partners do not provide IRD numbers and prescribed investor rates, the multi-rate PIE will deduct tax at the default rate of 28%.

Investors have one month to provide this information after a multi-rate PIE requests them.
