Self- Employment Support

We currently deliver our award-winning business start-up service across 10 different contracts around the UK, supporting individuals from all walks of life including the long-term unemployed, people with convictions and Further Education College students.
Our self-employment service includes:

One to one business support from a specialist RIFT Business Start-Up Advisor for 12 months, tailored to the participant’s needs and plans. As this support is provided remotely (in most cases), we don’t have the limitations of waiting for a participant to attend a face to face appointment with their advisor at a specific time/date

As well as structured support/advice sessions, the Business Start-Up Advisor is available to answer any questions or provide specific support at any time of the day. With RIFT, it’s all about relationship-building!

We have access to dozens of volunteer Business Start-Up Mentors who have successfully established businesses of their own and who are keen to pass on their learning to our participants

The business start-up support includes: access to a specialist insurance broker, free business cards, website and marketing support, regular live and interactive webinars on different business start-up topics, start-up loan advice, business planning, HMRC regulations and tax, VAT and NI obligations via our in-house tax specialist and access to our interactive e-learing platform

We will complete the participant’s first Self-Assessment tax return for them free of charge at the end of their first year of trading, teaching the participant how to do it for themselves the following year
