As a thank you for recommending our services we'll give you £50 for everyone you recommend (T&Cs apply) who claims with us, but we'll give you a bonus of an extra £150 if 5 people do. That's £400 in your pocket as well as the warm glow you get from helping out your mates. Help your workmates out now.

How does Refer a Friend work?
- Simply enter your friend's name and email address using our referral form and we'll send them a one off email to let them know that you think RIFT tax refunds could help them.
- If they get in touch and claim a refund, we'll send you a £50 reward for your help.
- For every 5 you send that claim, you get an extra £150 bonus.

Who can I refer for a tax refund?
Anyone who uses their own vehicle or public transport to travel to temporary workplaces or Armed Forces postings (temporary counts as 24 months) may be due a tax refund.
You can refer anyone to us that you think we can help. With 1 in 3 UK taxpayers paying too much tax, and over 80% of people who are referred to use being due a refund, there's a good chance that people you know are missing out on money that could really make a difference.

What's the maximum I can earn from the scheme?
There’s no cap on how much you can get. One of our top referrers is Simon Wakelin, a scaffolder from Birmingham. He’s earned nearly £2,000 so far by letting people know they could get a tax refund through RIFT. He says:
“I’ve been a client of RIFT’s for a couple of years, so I know first-hand that they do a great job. So when I heard about their Refer a Friend scheme, I knew of a few friends they could help and we’d all be onto a winner. Each new site I go to, I let the guys know about RIFT and the rewards soon add up. I’m saving for a deposit for my first house and the extra cash is really helping.”
We pay out each week, so that’s a handy bit of extra cash for whatever you want. It could mean a few drinks at the local, match tickets, or saving up like Simon for something bigger!
Why haven't I had my referral payment?
We pay your referral rewards once the person you referred has made a successful claim with us.
The first thing to do is check with your friend if they got in touch and started a claim with us. If they didn't you, you can always encourage them to get started.
It might be that the person you referred either wasn't owed anything by HMRC this year, decided not to use RIFT, had already been referred by someone else or didn't use your reference number when they first got in touch us.
If they've started their claim, that's great news for you both as they'll be getting a refund and you'll be getting your reward. As you'll know from your own claim, the process takes around 10 weeks after they first get in touch with us to getting their refund paid. As soon as they get that refund, though, you'll get your payment.
If they did use the link we sent them and they've had their refund payment but you haven't got your reward then please get in touch with us right away.
"I got £1,900 and my dad got £1,500 too!"
"I’m on the books working for Careys at the Lend Lease site in Victoria, London. Getting my tax refund couldn’t have been easier as one of the RIFT reps came on site and completed all the forms for me. Not only did they get me over £1,900 just in time for Christmas, but my dad got £1,500 too – and I got £20 for referring him! We’ll definitely be telling all our mates about RIFT and earning ourselves extra cash."
