Rebecca Dacre Director - Restructuring Services
Rebecca Dacre, a Director in the Mazars Milton Keynes office, is a licensed insolvency practitioner (FABRP) and chartered accountant (FCA) with over 16 years’ experience gained in both London and Milton Keynes. Rebecca has helped many business owners and directors navigate through the difficult times that their business has encountered and is regularly engaged in negotiating with banks/lenders/financial institutions. Her secondment to a bank and subsequent project work for the Banking Consulting team here at Mazars means that Rebecca can speak the banks’ language and has a depth of understanding of how they operate with distressed customers.
Rebecca advises both owner-managed business and medium-sized companies across a wide range of sectors including but not limited to: retail, automotive, intellectual property/R&D, engineering, manufacturing and construction. Rebecca regularly advises on solvent restructuring and group rationalisation, together with carrying out solvent liquidations for shareholders seeking to wind up their business and take out their capital. Rebecca works closely with her tax team on these assignments so that the most tax-efficient plans may be put in place. Additionally, Rebecca carries out advisory assignments assisting boards with a turnaround (both planning and implementing); she has a network of contacts who can act as non-exec directors and part-time FDs/FCs if the business needs that support.
