Welcome to Your American Dream!
Congratulations on your decision to relocate to the United States to create your very own American Dream! The E2 Investor Visa is currently one of the best US Immigration opportunities around. The E2 Visa does not have any quotas, so they never run out. And, the E2 Visa does not require any specific educational qualifications.
The primary key to getting your E2 Visa is to make sure you are working with a team of professionals that can guide you through the process and that understands precisely how to get your application approved.
Once you have identified your requirements with a qualified U.S. immigration attorney, then it's time to start locating and screening suitable business opportunities. There are numerous business-for-sale websites and you can spend a substantial number of hours searching and inquiring on various business. Each business is represented by a different brokerage firm and each brokerage firm will require you to complete a non-disclosure agreement of some type. Statistically, only one out of every ten businesses listed for sale will actually sell. Why is this number so low? Unfortunately, it is because the numbers stated in the advertisements on the business-for-sale websites seldom resemble the reality of the business sales and earnings. In other words, the advertisement may say the business generates gross revenue of $500,000 and cash flow of $100,000, but the tax returns may reflect gross revenue of $300,000 and net profit of only $2,000. After adding back all the various items that can be added to calculate the Seller's Discretionary Earnings (SDE), perhaps you are able to reach a cash flow or SDE of $45,000; however, this is still a far cry from the $100,000 that was stated in the ad. In many cases, the business owner is simply unable to produce sufficient documentation to substantiate the revenue and earnings stated.
Finding an appropriate business that will qualify for your E2 Visa can be more difficult than it sounds. At LA Business Pros, we work with you to identify your skillset, the types of businesses in which you would be interested, the region in which you will desire to relocate, and we search out and qualify businesses that will most effectively match your requirements. Once a business has been identified and properly screened, we provide assistance with purchase offers and negotiations. When your offer has been accepted, the next critical step is due diligence.
