Berlin, 15 February 2023 – Vereinigte Volksbank Raiffeisenbank cooperates with Zasta, Germany’s leading tax advisor platform, for the offer of a new fronting product, a 75% immediate tax payment. As part of the cooperation, Annerton advised FinTech-Volksbank comprehensively on all legal issues.
VVRB, which is considered a leader in the refinancing of FinTechs such as Billie, Mondu and Ratepay, is now cooperating with the tax platform Zasta in its first fronting project.
