Lawful Source of Funds

Each investor must demonstrate to us and to the USCIS that the investment proceeds come from a lawful source.  EB-5 regulations require that the immigrant investor demonstrate that the capital invested to participate in an EB-5 project was obtained by lawful means.  Therefore, immigrant investors can rely on any documentation demonstrating the funds were obtained lawfully, such as business records, salary and payroll records, tax records, investment portfolios, sale of assets such as real estate, inheritance, gift, loan and even certifications from the immigrant investor’s licensed accountants.  There is a variety of ways to successfully demonstrate the lawful source of funds used to invest in an EB-5 project.  We have extensive experience with this issue and we will work with immigrant investors and their representatives to ensure that proper documentation is submitted for this important task.
