Phil Griffiths

In 2014, Phil established PGEA having effectively dealt with excise tax management globally for over 23 years and remains fiercely passionate about his field of expertise. Having the rare quality of being able to combine his strong interpersonal skills with his vast knowledge of all things excise duty, Phil consistently delivers a pro-active approach to solving challenging issues that arise around duty.

Phil’s proven track record began within the UK Government’s Excise Policy Group before moving to PricewaterhouseCoopers. More recently Phil was an integral part of Diageo having total responsibility for their Global Excise Management and Compliance and more latterly as Head of Tax for Diageo’s online gifting business, Alexander & James.

Through his broad experience, Phil has built up a huge amount of respect in the industry and is a credible and reliable partner to advise both small and large companies or even governments on excise issues (see Welcome to PGEA). His flexible, solution orientated approach means that he is driven to enable you to deliver your business objectives, irrespective of the size of the challenge. Phil is also adept at delivering employee training in an engaging and informative manner. Contrary to popular belief excise doesn’t have to be mundane, it is the “Sin Tax” after all.

Phil has advised clients in a varied range of industries and is always keen to add more to his repertoire. Areas of current expertise are: Alcohol, tobacco products, oil, coffee and soft drinks production companies; retail and wholesale; oil and chemical; logistics; airport duty free; food manufacture; software development; and health and cosmetics.

From the UK, south to Rwanda and east to Albania, Phil has led excise projects in 28 countries covering the full spectrum of excise, delivering business supply chain efficiencies, identifying cash flow savings and overpayments of excise, successfully lobbying for changes to excise laws to introduce best practice and clear government strategies.
