As part of our ongoing due diligence efforts to make our plans compliant and affordable, we have been working closely with legal counsel on our direct investment model! It is well-accepted that an economic study is not required with a direct investment plan. Some clients, however, feel that having the IMPLAN calculation of job creation in the plan is important to the investor. We have found what we believe are two equally sound--and acceptable--means of presenting these beautiful plans. Only one element separates one plan from the other but it is a $400 distinction.

In EB-5 Direct Investment Sample I, jobs are calculated on the basis of validated revenue projections from which sales per employee is derived. For this type of plan, this calculation methodology is acceptable as long as the assumptions on which the calculation is based are valid. This can be seen in sections 1.3 and 8.1 in the sample.
In EB-5 Direct Investment Sample II, the job creation is calculated in IMPLAN and presented in an IMPLAN table. Each is fully validated and otherwise contains identical content. Because of the cost of the IMPLAN data, however, Sample I is $1,850 and Sample II is $2,250.
L1 and L1A Business Plans: Do you need an L1 or L1A Business Plan? Have you received an RFE (request for evidence) regarding either that requires a business plan or the resubmission of one? If so, we provide reasonably-priced plans along with an additional element often required by the USCIS--VIBE validation. VIBE is a Dun and Bradstreet validation of the existence of the business and we will handle filing this for you if you would like. Read more here...

The US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) describes the EB-5 program as follows:
The Immigrant Investor Program, also known as “EB-5”, was created by Congress in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by immigrant investors by creating a new commercial enterprise or investing in a troubled business. There are 10,000 EB-5 immigrant visas available annually. In 1992 and regularly reauthorized since then, 3,000 EB-5 visas are also set aside for investors in Regional Centers designated by USCIS based on proposals for promoting economic growth.
There are two distinct EB-5 pathways for an immigrant investor to gain lawful permanent residence for themselves and their immediate family-the Basic Program and the Regional Center Pilot Program. Both programs require that the immigrant make a capital investment of either $500,000 or $1,000,000 (depending on whether the investment is in a Targeted Employment Area [TEA] or not) in a new commercial enterprise located within the United States.
There are numerous requirements for the EB-5 Program and one of the key requirements is a Matter of Ho-compliant business plan that is provided to the Regional Center and/or the investor(s). This plan is filled with detailed information about the company or project and contains specific language required by the USCIS. There are only a handful of qualified firms that provide this service nationally. EB-5 Business Resources, LLC is one of those firms and we have the knowledge and experience to provide you with a high-quality plan that meets all of the USCIS requirements for the EB5 visa immigration program.
In a time when most other options are failing, this is a direct and indirect means of putting Americans back to work. With capital for new projects virtually unavailable--even to those with sterling credit--this is a means of getting new projects off the ground. There are many information resources on this site and we encourage you to take advantage of all of them.
