To make the project work from a US Immigration/EB-5 perspective (not a business viability perspective as we are not business or financial analysis’s), you need to show proof the location is in a TEA and that 10 full time US citizen or permanent resident jobs will be created. Purchasing an existing business has its own unique requirements that would require additional information. We would also review the business activities with an economist to determine acceptable job creation.
In a direct EB-5 investment the funds may be placed in a holding company. The holing company can own several 100% owned subsidiaries which can operate different type of businesses.
The funds under these circumstances can be disbursed amongst the businesses as well as the required jobs.
