Director and Brexit Customs & Indirect Tax Lead
KPMG in the UK
Reflecting the demand for duty efficient and compliant international supply chains, Bob has developed and grown KPMG’s customs, excise & international trade team to 14 specialists, the largest in the UK, and leads on the firm’s Brexit response in customs and indirect tax.
His team is based in the indirect Tax London office. It provides deep advisory skills in the niche areas of customs (i.e. to all companies involved in international movements of goods) and excise (i.e. to companies manufacturing and moving tobacco, beverage and oil products domestically and internationally). Advice covers legal aspects of compliance, savings, disputes, and practical advice around process and technology to help deliver goods compliantly and efficiently. Excise taxes affecting these industries are often material, and hence cut across legal, corporate affairs and other taxes. Bob’s team is part of a global network of over 400 such specialists.
