RIFT R&D works with a number of accountancy practices to help their clients claim R&D tax relief.

We agree a working arrangement and fee, based on how much needs to be done.

Independent Financial Advisors
IFAs invest their client’s money or advise on tax-efficient ways to protect future earnings. Referral fees from R&D tax relief give a welcome additional income and add a key service to their range of products and offerings.
Patent applications can be expensive and time-consuming, but businesses that apply stand a good chance of qualifying for credits for research and development. A tax refund can take the sting out of the patent process, so our patent attorney partners often refer their clients to us for help.
"As a Qualified Management Consultant I'm constantly looking at ways my clients can reduce their costs and improve their carbon footprint. One of my clients, an innovative UK manufacturer, designs and markets wearable health devices which repair damaged tissue and reduce pain. All their manufacturing is done locally to reduce carbon, there are no throw away batteries or attachments, and the product reduces hospital visits by over 50%.
I recommended that they look into R&D tax credits and appoint a company that would help them with their claim. In the last 6 months they have claimed back £26,000 from HMRC. The process was very simple and the money was deducted at source, reducing their Corporation tax. That extra, unexpected £26,000 enabled them to significantly grow their business and they are now planning a further grant support injection for over £100,000. Furthermore the business did not need to wait for their end of year before claiming the money as you can claim for the preceding two years on your first claim! If you think you won’t qualify for R&D tax credits, think again, you’d be surprised what activities and costs qualify. The company they used had a no win, no fee offer which was great for my client." Clive Bonney, Strategic Management Partnership
