EB5 IMMIGRANT INVESTOR PROGRAM MODERNIZATION PROPOSAL
On January 13, the Federal Register published a Notice of Proposed Rule-making titled EB-5 Investor Program Modernization (DHS Docket No. USCIS 2016-0006). DHS is proposing to increase the minimum investment amounts for all new EB-5 petitioners. The increase would ensure that program requirements reflect the present-day dollar value of the investment amounts established by Congress in 1990. Specifically, DHS proposes to initially increase the standard minimum investment amount, which also applies to high employment areas, from $1 million to $1.8 million. For those investors seeking to invest in a new commercial enterprise that will be principally doing business in a targeted employment area (TEA), DHS proposes to increase the minimum investment amount from $500,000 to $1.35 million, which is 75 percent of the proposed standard minimum investment amount.
Direct Investment Plans
There is little doubt that the increase in USCIS fees at the end of last year will change the face of the EB-5 program: How it will change is open to speculation at this point. Likely, however, direct investments will become more common. So we are going to highlight our direct investment offering for those that want to avail themselves of this medium for funding projects through EB-5. While there are caveats to the program--namely that the search for investors is borne by the project and not a regional center and that only direct jobs can be used, it is nonetheless an excellent vehicle for EB-5 funding
Our EB-5 Direct Investment offerings are Matter of Ho-compliant business plans that contain all of the elements of our EB-5 plans that are to be submitted through a regional center--save one. Our method of calculating job creation has been altered to conform to USCIS requirements. Everything else remains the same: Our current demographics and market research are still there along with our identification of the target market; a proprietary analysis still validates unmet demand in the target market area; current industry market information is there; the Forecast Summary and Anticipated Investor Return are there; a Competition analysis is there; and a set of five-year financials.
Our usual rate for direct investment plans ranges from $2,000 to $2,500 depending on the nature of the project.
As there is little doubt that the EB-5 program itself will change, there is little doubt that the parameters of the targeted employment area certifications will also change. (See above) At least until April of this year, no changes are anticipated. After that, no one knows. If you want to locate your project in a TEA to attract $500,000 investors or you are an investor that wants to put $500,000 in a TEA project, now is the time to do it. At present, input is being solicited from stakeholders about the program but, since the push for reform is bipartisan, it is almost a given that the expiration of the current extension will bring changes to the current TEA designation rules, if nothing else.
We will obtain certification for qualified or potentially qualified TEAs free as part of a purchase of one of our plans or studies.
