Taylor Wessing advises Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan Board as lead investor in $220 million financing round in Taxfix GmbH

The German fintech industry gains a unicorn in Taxfix GmbH (Taxfix): the Berlin-based startup raises $220 million (€209 million) in capital in a Series D financing round, increasing its company valuation to more than €1 billion. Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan Board (OTPP) leads the round of backers. Previous investors Index Ventures, Valar Ventures, Creandum and Redalpine are also participating again. Lead investor OTPP was advised on this funding round by a Taylor Wessing team led by Frankfurt partner Hassan Sohbi.

Taxfix enables simplified, digital processing of tax returns via app, including automated submission to the tax office. The application is already used in Germany, France, Spain and Italy and is Europe's leading mobile tax app. In addition to its headquarters in Berlin, the company is based in Madrid and employs more than 500 people in total.
