Any PAYE worker paying for travel to temporary workplaces can qualify for a tax refund. Even if they get a mileage allowance, if it’s not at the HMRC rate they can still claim the difference. They might also qualify to claim for other expenses, like meals, lodging and laundry. Our tax refund experts can advise exactly what they can and can’t claim for. We can go even back 4 years, which on average gives a first tax refund of around £2,500.


We specialise in completing tax returns and maximising tax refunds for self-employed workers, whether already established or new to the system.

We believe that it’s important to make it as easy as possible to find out if they’re missing money that should be back in their pockets so our service includes:

  • No up-front costs to find out if you’re due a refund.
  • No refund, no charge.
  • Handling all paperwork, calculations and communications with HMRC.
  • Fully inclusive aftercare service with no extra hidden charges.
  • RIFT Guarantee: when you get your tax refund from us, you can be sure that it’s 100% yours to keep.

The majority of our customers come back to us year on year and it’s always the great value they get from our customer service that they talk about.

Most of our new business comes from word of mouth referrals. We love it when happy clients tell their friends about us. We’ve got a special Refer a Friend scheme to say thank you.

I claimed over £2,724 after my colleague told me about RIFT

I joined the Army when I was 16 and heard about RIFT through a colleague at my barracks. I’ve travelled to quite a few different bases, including outside the UK, using my car and flights too. I called RIFT and they said I could claim for the past four years and get my money even quicker with their RIFT Rapid Refund service. They were easy to get in touch with over email and phone, and they let me know quickly how much I was owed. Before I knew it the cash was in my account! It was great to get back over £2,724 so quickly and now I’ve started telling my mates I’m getting money from referrals too.

I got over £6000 back and treated the kids.

I saw the RIFT advert in the Sun and though it was worth a shot to see if I was owed any money. I’ve been with Galamast for 8 years now, use my own car to get around and am always travelling long distances to different sites. I was chuffed when RIFT phoned and told me I got over £6,000 back – it was the easiest money I’ve got back in my life! I’ll definitely be in touch with them again this year to see if I can get any more. I’ve treated the kids to a few nice days out since I got the money so they’re happy too!

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.
