Why form a partnership with KICC?

The business community of Kent is incredibly vibrant, energetic and diverse. Just like RIFT, KICC is dedicated to making sure that companies based here have the best possible chance to thrive. The Chamber is committed to offering outstanding support, and RIFT is excited to be playing its part through a comprehensive and easily accessible R&D Tax Relief service.

What makes RIFT the right tool for the job?

RIFT Tax Credits is the UK’s leading light in R&D Tax Credits claims. We’ve already claimed back £12.5 million for our R&D Tax Relief clients, with a success rate of 99.5%. That’s not even considering the over £110 million we’ve saved customers through completing 48,000 tax returns each year.

What does the new service actually include?

Together with KICC, we’re building a complete, start-to-finish service for Chamber members, demystifying the process and maximising its rewards. Our partnership means we can offer:

  • A comprehensive service that handles every stage of the claim process.
  • Expert accounting support to help with the fine details of tax advice and refunds.
  • Professional introductions to trusted partners specialising in fundraising, grants, Intellectual Property and more.
  • A dedicated telephone helpline specifically for Chamber members.
  • Quarterly clinics and one-to-one sessions to talk through your specific circumstances, questions and needs.
  • An exclusive, reduced fee for KICC members.

How will RIFT work with me on my claim?

At RIFT, our technical experts speak the same language as yours. We’ll work with you to paint a complete picture of your qualifying projects and expenditure, building a well supported “technical narrative” and backing it up with evidence at every stage. Once we’ve set that out, we’ll quickly be able to estimate the total value of your tax relief claim. We’ll stick with you right through the final submission of your paperwork - and if HMRC starts dragging its heels over paying out, we’ll chase them up and resolve any queries they have. Crucially, we’ll keep you in the loop every step of the way. Every claim is handled with the highest levels of professionalism, expertise and confidentiality.

RIFT Tax Credits has a vast range of experience in successfully building and processing R&D claims for businesses large or small in every industry. We’re the preferred partner of many membership organisations and trade associations, and our partnership with KICC means we can help more businesses than ever before.
