I don't need help with the visa, I am looking for help in and around taxable global income.

On what basis do you have permission to reside in the USA? You'll need to share a little about your circumstances before people will be prepared to assist you.

Please refer to Pulaski's post in the wiki. (Hint: Are you seeking to operate the USA branch/arm of your UK company? Or are you looking to invest 500K+?)

You may not need help with a visa...but if you've read through the many threads in the US forums...most people who ask for help moving to the US have no hopes of obtaining a US visa. Sooooo perhaps you could enlighten us as to what visa you have...or are hoping to get...to enable us to help you.

Begs the question what that has to do with Nothern California. Something to ask your financial advisors?

Hopefully pretty straightforward. As a U.S. resident, all your global income will be taxable.

To borrow a tag line from GUYA: "America has the simplest tax system in the universe; worldwide on everything - forever."

Hi all, firstly thank you for your replies.
Please let me clarify;
I currently own a property in the US via HSBC, bought in June 15. There was no visa needed for this process.
I have not applied for a visa to enter the US as yet.
I am not looking to apply for my visa until I can clarify the tax process for UK citizens who have UK business interests.
Once I can confirm the process and if financially viable I will be looking to apply for an L1 visa which will enable me and my family to relocate and for me to set up a new subsidiary of our UK business.
I am only stating Northern California as the tax laws are different to other states and this is the help I am seeking.
I hope this helps all.
Best wishes
Alvin

Only for local stuff and business taxes. The big one is federal and that won't matter where you sit, so on a personal level will have more impact, which is worldwide income.

Is this from day one also bearing in mind I am only going to the US for 2-5 years to set up the new business?
