As one of the most successful and fast-growing FinTech startup companies in Europe, we are currently experiencing exciting growth and development. We are revolutionising the way people file their taxes; helping them to save money, time and stress by putting a personalised digital tax consultant into the palm of their hands. Our user-friendly Taxfix App enables people to file their tax declaration within 22 minutes on average, without any prior tax knowledge or the complicated forms associated with it.

The tax industry is outdated and we have embraced the disruption we can cause here by innovating and thinking outside of the typical "Tax box".
Our customer experience is driven by our mission to help people get their maximum tax refunds , without any prior tax knowledge or complicated forms in a convenient and hassle-free manner
We have taken inspiration from how a face to face Tax Accountant consultation happens by creating a conversational UI that is hyper-personalised to every customers' specific tax situation.
Questions asked to customers are based on the answers they have already given. Our german product for example, has almost 4000 questions, but a customer is usually asked around 70, depending on their tax situation.
