Research and Development Tax Credits are one of the business world's best kept secrets and deepest buried treasures. A single claim's worth £49,000 on average, but 96% of the businesses that qualify for them are missing out. If your clients are taking risks and solving problems in any sector, then teaming up with RIFT R&D could be a huge boost to their business and yours.
RIFT R&D is working to make sure that business innovators of all kinds get the credit they deserve, and partnering with accounting firms is an incredible opportunity to raise awareness of R&D Tax Credits. Many accountants don't have the time to dedicate to this or the in-house specialist knowledge it takes to make the most of the scheme. Partnering with RIFT R&D adds to your expertise and gives you a vital new string to your bow by introducing your clients to us - the way a GP refers a patient to a specialist.
By referring your clients to us, we can:
Quickly and reliably work out if they have a claim.
Unearth every qualifying project and cost.
Build your clients' claim for you to present to HMRC.
Fight your clients' corner until their claims are approved.
Offer ongoing help, advice and support for future claims.
Once the client's claim has been approved and we are in receipt of our fee, we'll pay you a referral fee.
Many accountants are already building their relationships with clients by referring them to RIFT Research and Development for their R&D Tax Credit claims. In fact, we even offer a free initial consultation to check if they're eligible for the scheme.
RIFT R&D's entire focus is on building strong and complete R&D Tax Credit claims.
We've got a strong relationship with HMRC and technical experts with the keenest eyes in the business for picking out qualifying projects. In many cases we've been able to hunt down R&D costs over and above those found by others' initial reviews - in one case over £900,000 of missed qualifying expenditure!
It's not just about our technical expertise, either.
We're a lot more flexible than you're probably expecting, and our approach is very different. We're not robotic box-tickers picking through your client's business. We're approachable, trustworthy and accommodating - and we can gather all the information we need without ever getting in the way. There'll be no interrogations or invasive scrutiny - just a no-hassle, profitable chat with a trusted advisor.
Total flexibility in how we work together. No one-size-fits-all mentality.
An understanding of your clients' businesses and yours.
A unique approach. We're a core part of your team, not uncaring, intrusive outsiders.
We're always there when we're needed, with personal, one-to-one service and a familiar face to talk to. We'll steer your clients through the whole process, but we'll never be underfoot. Whether you want us to roll up our sleeves and get fully hands-on, or to be completely "behind the scenes" so they barely even notice us, the way we work together is entirely up to you. Either way, you’ll know you’ve a powerful new sidekick on your team.
Research and Development is part of the day-to-day life of so many companies, and RIFT R&D is determined to make sure it's no longer swept under the carpet as "just the cost of staying in business". This means working with accountants and clients on an ongoing basis, putting them on the right footing for future claims.
