German mobile tax app Taxfix cuts 120 jobs in restructuring effort

Berlin-based mobile tax app Taxfix has implemented a restructuring effort, resulting in the layoff of 120 employees, which accounts for approximately 20% of its workforce. This move comes after Taxfix acquired a German start-up called Steuerbot, expanded its operations to Italy and Spain, and secured a significant funding round.
