Special tax rules mean you pay no more than 28% tax on interest income earned (usually you pay your regular income tax rate).
Available to almost everyone, including companies, trusts and organisations.
How it works
The maximum tax rate on interest income on all PIE investments is 28%, even if your regular tax rate is higher.
When you sign up for a PIE investment, make sure to select the correct Prescribed Investor Rate (PIR). If you choose a PIR that is too low, you may end up being taxed at your normal marginal tax rate. If you choose a PIR that is too high, you won't be able to get a refund of the additional tax. Use the calculator below to work out your correct PIR, and to help decide if a PIE product is right for you.
