Hi Pete,

We're just starting out on the road to expat status. I've received a job offer in San Diego and are currently evaluating the tax implications of relocating.

The current question I have is that if I sell my main family home in the UK after I accept/initiate a H1B visa, do I have to capital gains on the proceeds of the house sale? If so is there any capital gains allowance, is this on profit of the house sale or whole sale price, and what are the rates of capital gains.

On a similar note, is there any implications on moving the proceeds of the house sale into the US. Our aim would be to buy in the US once we're settled.

thanks!

Toocan, I have copied your post from the pinned thread to make your own thread. Please read my message here: http://britishexpats.com/forum/showp...08&postcount=5

I would urge caution to you WRT buying in the US 'too early' and for you to remember that the H-1B is a temporary visa.
