    Our Company

    The history of our company started in the middle of the 1990s, when Willi Mecklenburg began to work as a self-employed tax consultant in Düsseldorf again. Before, he was a partner at Pricewaterhouse (later on “PricewatehouseCoopers” or “PwC”) and responsible for the tax department at their Düsseldorf office. Thus, he was especially involved with international clients and affairs.

    Our Company

    The history of our company started in the middle of the 1990s, when Willi Mecklenburg began to work as a self-employed tax consultant in Düsseldorf again. Before, he was a partner at Pricewaterhouse (later on “PricewatehouseCoopers” or “PwC”) and responsible for the tax department at their Düsseldorf office. Thus, he was especially involved with international clients and affairs.

    In the following years, Willi Mecklenburg convinced four former senior managers of various departments of Pricewaterhouse to join his own enterprise. Together, they form the current circle of partners. The first of them was Claus Hoffmann in 2000, which led to the name our company still has today: “Mecklenburg + Hoffmann GmbH”.

    Led by the owners at our Düsseldorf location, our company has always been focused on international affairs and attuned to the typical requirements of medium and larger-sized companies. Our clients can be found in a wide range of industries, for example renowned international trade firms, plant-construction companies, automobile supply enterprises, real estate and chemical corporations as well as large architecture offices. They all are met with the perfect combination of experience and commitment, of expertise and know-how and of systematics and synergies.

    Besides our bigger clients who often belong to international groups, a growing circle of private and small business clients started to develop. To support them individually and personally became more and more important to us as well.

    By acquiring a partnership in 2011 that was also based in Düsseldorf and that particularly focused on this segment of clients we have committed ourselves to this field of business and were able to strengthen our company purposefully.

    We offer our clients high calibre consultancy services and have lean structures which enable us to provide personal attention. In addition we are big enough to have the right experts for every specialist area at their disposal.

    Thus, our clients can expect quality advice and service at reasonable terms.

    Cooperations

    We offer service, knowledge and competence at fair conditions. But of course, we can not be experts in every field. Therefore, we joined sides with several chosen and trusted specialists and formed a well proven cooperative network that we can rely on at all times. It consists of the following partners:

    Killaars Steeghs Group

    Many of our clients belong to international groups of companies who also are active in the Netherlands. Those groups are quite common in our region, and it’s especially them who profit from our cooperation with the accountants and, in Dutch, the belastingsadviseurs of the Killaars Steeghs Group, based in the nearby province of Limburg.

    With this company and their roundabout 80 Dutch professionals we are connected in a long-time cooperation, that makes information exchange and coordination across borders as easy as possible. So these clients in many ways profit from true one-stop service.

    Miscellaneous

    It is also the activities apart from the pure consulting and auditing business that reflect the character of our enterprise. But please have a look ...

    Donation instead of Christmas cards

    In 2020 we have decided again not to send Christmas cards to clients and to business partners. Instead, we have donated an amount equal to the avoided costs (material, postage and work time) to the children’s and teenager’s hospice “Regenbogenland” in Düsseldorf. With this money we particularly support animal-based forms of therapy. Regenbogenland makes use of two specially trained therapy dogs that frequently come into the house and bring a lot of joy to the children.

    A children’s hospice is a house for children that have a limited life expectancy due to a terminal disease or to a severe handicap. People there focus on life and on the lust for life. It is an institution that wants to help families arrange the remaining time with their children as fulfilled and positive as possible.

    Internationality

    In times of globalization, in which the world is getting smaller and smaller and business contacts with people of different cultures are commonplace, we do enjoy cultivating those personal relationships. This implies discussions that are not limited to the pure client relationship like facts and figures.

    It is particularly the knowledge gained in such conversations about the characteristics and customs of other nations that is often the basis of a successful economic cooperation. This knowledge is something that we offer to our clients to support them with their cross-border topics and transactions.

    Mecklenburg + Hoffmann and music

    We frequently sponsor concert events in Dusseldorf.

    The last evening concert that we have organized took place in November 2019 under our patronage. The exciting theme of the event was „The prelude strikes back“. The artist duo „Imbrotherisation“, comprised of the brothers Gregor und Raphael Mayrhofer, presented a variety of Jazz, classical music, Tango, improvisation and audience opera to the visitors. Together with our guests, we have enjoyed this evening very much – far apart from all tax-related matters.

    Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic made comparable evening concerts impossible in the year 2020. But also in the future, we will continously take opportunities like these to support artists in this form.

    Commitment to sport

    Traditionally, Mecklenburg + Hoffmann GmbH has been participating in the annual relay competition of the Metro-Marathon in Dusseldorf since 2015 to promote the physical activity and the team spirit of our employees.

    Last time in 2019, we managed to enter a relay team. Despite the workload which is traditionally high in the first few months of each calendar year, it seemed as if the active runners had again prepared very well for their performance that year.

    Considering that close to 2,500 relay teams participated in the marathon, finishing in position 599 was an improvement compared to the previous year. This meant a quite remarkable result and the second best score ever of one of our relay teams.

    Regrettably, the Metro Marathon in 2020 had to be cancelled due to the Corona pandemic. Now all our running colleagues hope that a running event will take place in 2021 again. It is already a done deal that at least one relay team can be found in the line-up for the next competition.

    Teaching

    In addition to the education and further training of our own employees, we also try to contribute to the education of students or of occupational groups that work outside of our subject areas. As part of this commitment, Mr. Schücking has been working steadily on staff as lecturer at the dual university of the state of Baden-Württemberg in Mannheim for years and holds lectures on accounting and taxes. Also, clients use our expertise in this field in order to keep their employees professionally up to date.
