EB-5 Business Investor Visa
The EB-5 Program was created by Congress in 1990 in order to stimulate the U.S. economy by creating jobs and encouraging capital investment by foreign investors. In 1992, the Immigrant Investor Program (Regional Center Program) was also created by Congress in order to set aside EB-5 visas for business investors in particular Regional Centers in order to promote economic growth.
As an EB-5 investor, you must demonstrate that the new business will create at least 10 full time positions, or when buying a troubled business that the employees will be kept in place for at least 2 years. You must also submit financials demonstrating your capital investment as well as how the capital was obtained.
At Calas Group, our international experience and ability to communicate with our clients in English, Spanish or Portuguese makes us ideally suited to review your EB-5 proposal and prepare certified financials of initial investment to accompany your application. We’re here to provide immigration support for citizens of all types.
ITIN Application Support
As a new U.S. business owner you are required to file U.S. taxes. Your tax documentation requires applying for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). An ITIN is issued by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service regardless of your immigration status, since resident and nonresident aliens may have tax filing requirements under the Internal Revenue Code. Your spouse and/or dependents may also require an ITIN.
Calas provides immigration support for your ITIN application and certification. We’ll work with you to make sure you have the proper documentation in place in order to satisfy the tax filing requirements of the U.S. government.”
