On 15 May 2004, a spokesman of the trade union FNV Bondgenoten announced that 600 jobs were threathened by the bankruptcy of Taxi Seubers. The taxation administration requires some 4,3 million euros. Taxi Seubers in Aalden was declared bankrupt by a court in Assen on 18 May 2004. The company filed for bankruptcy after several unsuccessful attempts to continue operations. The company services handicapped and provides personal taxi transport in a large part of the northern Dutch provinces of Drenthe, Groningen and Flevoland. The company had more than 600 employees, most part-time workers. Most of the company's drivers moved to companies, which took over the handicapped and personal taxi transport in the provinces. The company has been facing financial difficulties since the beginning of May 2004. The Dutch bank Rabobank has stopped financing the company.
