Tax refund company joins county’s fastest growing
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.
