Carlo Franchina

National Leader, Corporate Tax

KPMG Australia

Carlo has more than 25 years of corporate tax experience in Australia and the UK. He is the Australian and ASPAC region Tax Leader of KPMG's Energy & Natural Resources Sector. Carlo's expertise includes income tax, capital gains tax and royalty taxation affecting resource companies. He provides international tax advice including structuring, funding and transfer pricing support. He has extensive experience with a number of large high-profile merger, acquisition and divestment transactions. “I really enjoy supporting international companies investing in energy natural resource projects in Australia – helping them support and grow the Australian economy and at the same time helping these organisations play a key role in securing natural resources for their home country,” he says.

He has assisted companies through many challenging times in the sector – “it is a boom and bust industry”. “What you learn is that you do get through the challenging times – things always turn around. I always remain optimistic and it is in the tough times when we need to really be there to help and support our clients,” he says.

Carlo has presented at numerous industry and technical conferences on resource taxation. His role takes him regularly to Japan, China, Singapore and Indonesia.

His spare time is busy with his two children and he enjoys following AFL, as well as swimming and running.
