Check your tax rate

What is the prescribed investor rate?

Your prescribed investor rate (PIR) determines how much tax you pay on your investment earnings from the Booster KiwiSaver Scheme.

Why is it important?

Which rate applies to you depends on your overall income from all sources.

You need to tell us your prescribed investor rate (PIR) or we'll use the default rate of 28%.

If you don't choose the correct rate, you could be paying more tax or less tax than you need to.

If you overpay your tax, you cannot get a refund.

If you've underpaid, you’ll need to pay any shortfall to Inland Revenue.

Check your PIR

You can check and update your prescribed investor rate (PIR) by following these steps:

  1. log in to your Booster KiwiSaver Scheme member account
  2. go to the 'My Details' section
  3. view your PIR rate.
