Tax re­fund com­pany joins county’s fastest grow­ing

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Business Update -

An Ash­ford firm has been in­cluded on the Me­gagrowth 50 list for the first time.

The RIFT Group, based at Ash­ford’s Eureka Park, ap­pears on the Me­gagrowth list for the first time this year.

The UK leader in tax re­funds was founded in 2000 by Jan Post.

In its 15-year history it has con­tin­ued to di­ver­sify and has grown a rep­u­ta­tion for ex­cel­lence in re­search and de­vel­op­ment tax cred­its, SME cloud ac­count­ing ser­vices, cap­i­tal al­lowances and will writ­ing.

The com­pany has seen its turnover grow by 255% in four years, and in ad­di­tion staff num­bers have grown from 44 to 152 peo­ple.

Jan Post said: “Be­com­ing a Me­gagrowth 50 com­pany is a fan­tas­tic ac­co­lade and it is a real achieve­ment to be con­sid­ered among other lead­ing Kent busi­nesses.

“We are es­pe­cially proud to have been able to grow the busi­ness dur­ing a time when many busi­nesses have suc­cumbed to ex­ter­nal eco­nomic pres­sures.

“Com­bin­ing this news with it be­ing our 15th an­niver­sary year, plus our re­cent KEiBA Award for cus­tomer ser­vice and com­mit­ment, com­pletes a hat-trick of re­cent rea­sons to celebrate and we are im­mensely pleased to be recog­nised for the hard work and com­mit­ment of ev­ery­one here.”

Me­gagrowth 50 is a busi­ness league ta­ble, which recog­nises the 50 fastest-grow­ing busi­nesses in Kent.

Now in its 14th year, Me­gagrowth 50 is com­piled based on the av­er­age turnover growth of pri­vately owned busi­nesses that have a min­i­mum turnover of £1m.

It is or­gan­ised by the Kent Mes­sen­ger Group and spon­sored by Lloyds Bank, asb law and Kre­ston Reeves.
