What is the Prescribed Investor Rate (PIR)?

Just like you pay tax on the wages or salary you earn, you also need to pay tax on the income you receive on investments such as the AMP KiwiSaver Scheme.

With KiwiSaver, the rate of tax you pay is called a Prescribed Investor Rate (PIR) and the rate is largely determined by how much you earn. The current tax rates for KiwiSaver are 28%, 17.5% and 10.5%. It's a good idea to check you are using the right PIR as paying tax using the wrong tax rate is like carrying the wrong size hiking pack - you're either carrying too little or too much.

To ensure you are carrying the right load, use our simple PIR guide.

Inland Revenue can directly notify AMP where it considers that you are on the wrong PIR. In this case, we are obliged to update your profile with their suggested PIR. You can subsequently give us a call if you think the Inland Revenue have got it wrong. If this happens, we also recommend you contact Inland Revenue to ensure they have the correct income details for you.

Don’t overpay or underpay

If your PIR is too high you may pay too much tax. However, from 1 April 2020 you may be able to claim overpaid tax back from the Inland Revenue. 
If your PIR is too low, you’ll likely end up with additional tax to pay to Inland Revenue.
