UEFA said it had lifted a number of restrictions on transfer activity, employee expenses and number of players in UEFA club competitions which had been placed on the clubs last season.
The decision was taken after City and PSG "reached certain targets towards break-even compliance", UEFA added.
UEFA said that, in both cases, the clubs remained "under strict monitoring and has still to meet break-even targets and is therefore subject to some limitations in 2016."
UEFA did not give any further details.
