The ANZ PIE Fund operates under the Portfolio Investment Entity (‘PIE’) special tax rules. This means that the maximum tax rate applied to income earned in the ANZ PIE Fund is 28%. If you are paying income tax at a rate of 30% or 33%, you’ll benefit from the difference between your income tax rate and the maximum PIE tax rate. The rate at which your income earned from the ANZ PIE Fund is taxed is called your prescribed investor rate (‘PIR’).

You may also benefit if you have a PIR of 10.5% or 17.5%. More information is available in the ANZ PIE Fund Investment Statement.

Deciding to invest in the ANZ PIE Fund

If your PIR is lower than your current income tax rate, then you may receive greater after-tax returns in the ANZ PIE Fund than from a traditional bank deposit. Before making your investment decision, you should compare your PIR with your income tax rate to work out if the ANZ PIE Fund will offer you a better effective rate of return.

Understanding the effective rate of return

The effective rate of return is the rate you would need to earn on a traditional bank deposit taxed at your income tax rate to achieve the same after-tax return you can achieve by investing in the ANZ PIE Fund taxed at your PIR.

Investments in the ANZ PIE Fund are taxed at your PIR (the maximum PIR is 28%). Our case studies assume your income tax rate is higher than your PIR (that is, 30% or 33%), and that this is the rate at which you would pay tax on a traditional bank deposit.
