Re: Selling a property in France to buy here

hi,
thanks for the replies. I have paid tax in France for three years and there is a loophole whereby you can sell one property in your lifetime even if you are no longer living in France without paying capital gains. I'm wondering about the Swiss side of things and if any profit is somehow subject to a capital gains or another tax in Switzerland, should I bring the money here and use it as a downpayment on a property here. Would seem unfair if it is, have only lived here five minutes, but I do now have a B permit and am Swiss resident

cheers,
LMG
