KPMG in Canada

Carla Figliomeni’s practice focuses on trusts and estates and personal tax planning. She advises clients on planning for family business succession, corporate reorganizations and amalgamations, and estate freezes, as well as maximizing capital gains exemptions, identifying income-splitting opportunities, and drafting wills and trusts with consideration to probate tax issues, Family Law Act implications, and eligibility for the Ontario Disability Support Program.

Carla works closely with family offices, including KPMG’s multi-family office, to help simplify complex wealth circumstances, protect and grow a family’s estate, plan for effective charitable giving, and uphold a family’s legacy. She also advises both individual and corporate trustees, executors, and attorneys for property on their duties and obligations, and has experience advising on multi-jurisdictional estate administrations. In addition, Carla often counsels beneficiaries on their rights with respect to their interest in a trust or estate.
