RIFT have been made aware that HMRC have sent a communication to the MOD that they believe that during the last 2 years:

  • ''inflated claims'' for tax refunds for travel expenses have been submitted by Service Personnel
  • as a result of tax relief rules having been incorrectly applied when those claims were made.

We can confirm that this will not affect any RIFT customers because:

  • All RIFT customers are protected under our RIFT Guarantee.
  • Our MOD tax refund experts are scrupulous in the calculation of your claims and full breakdowns are supplied to all our customers to confirm prior to submission to HMRC.
  • Enquiries into our customers claims are standard, and HMRC complete frequent random checks. As the UK’s number one provider for the last 20 years, our dedicated Compliance Team hold a 94% success rate in defending the full value of our claims.
