Customer Stories

''I got over £6,000 back and treated the kids''

''I saw the RIFT advert in The Sun and thought it was worth a shot to see if I was owed any money.  I've been with Galamast for 8 years now, use my own car to get around and am always travelling long distances to different sites.  I was chuffed when RIFT phoned and told me I got over £6,000 back - it was the easiest money I've got back in my life! I'll definitely be in touch with them again this year to see if I can get any more.  I've treated the kids to a few nice days out since I got the money so they're happy too!''

HMRC Tax Refunds

When can I claim my tax rebate?

Often, the perfect time to claim your UK tax refund is after the end of the tax year. Sometimes, though, you’ll find yourself with claims that stretch back a little further. Remember, even if you’ve never claimed a tax rebate before, there might still be time to get back what you’re due. You can claim back overpaid tax for up to 4-years – and it’s absolutely worth doing it. An average 4-year tax refund from RIFT stacks up to over £2,500! Just 4 quick questions and a minute of your time will set you on the road to your tax rebate. That could well be the single most valuable minute of your year!

Tax Returns

Self Assessment Tax Returns with RIFT

Some of the most common questions we get asked at RIFT are “what is a tax return?” and “how much tax do I owe?”

When you’re taxed through the PAYE system, HMRC takes its bite of your income before you even get it. It goes straight from your employer, using your tax code. However, if you’ve got other sources of income, your tax code won’t paint a complete picture of your earnings on its own. That means you’ll probably have to file a tax return through the Self Assessment system to report your income and expenses to HMRC. When you’re sorting out a tax refund, claiming for expenses of over £2,500 will also mean sending a tax return to get your money. If you’ve filed Self Assessment tax returns before, you’ll already know they can be difficult to get right and disastrous to get wrong. That’s where the Self Assessment experts at RIFT really shine.

If you’re self-employed, you need to get yourself registered for Self Assessment as soon as you can. There’s a strict deadline of the 5th of October in the year you start trading, and missing it could be painful. Self Assessment tax return penalties are based on the potential tax HMRC thinks it’s lost, and they’re no joke. With RIFT on your side, though, you’ll always know your tax returns are in expert hands. Check out our self-employed tax calculator to get started.

Tax Rebate

Are HMRC tax rebates legal?

It’s so important to realise that there’s absolutely nothing wrong or “dodgy” about claiming your yearly tax refunds. HMRC isn’t your enemy, and it genuinely doesn’t want a penny more of your money than you owe.

Since way back in 1998, UK tax law has ruled that anyone travelling to temporary workplaces while continuously employed can claim tax back on their travel expenses. We can claim military tax refunds, construction tax refunds and more! Whatever job you do, unless your employer pays or reimburses your travel expenses in full, you could be missing out on the tax rebate you’re owed by law.

This is your money, and it’s 100% legal to claim it back. What’s more, HMRC actively wants you to get the tax relief you’re owed under sections 336- 339 of the Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003.

At RIFT, we follow the official legal guidance set out in HMRC guide 490 - Employee Travel – and we never claim a penny more than you’re owed. With RIFT, both your refund and you are completely protected. You’ll get back the tax you’re due, and stay in HMRC’s good books at the same time.
