Buying an Existing Business in the U.S.
Purchasing an Existing Business in the U.S.
Buying a ready-made business in the U.S. is not only a great way to invest and increase your own funds, but also the opportunity to get an immigrant visa, as well as a United States green card for yourself and your family. The purchase of a ready-made business, subject to its compliance with the requirements of the immigration office, allows you to apply for L-1 visa or E-2 nonimmigrant visas, as well as to get EB immigrant visas.

Doing business in the United States attracts businessmen from all over the world through loyal legislation, transparent taxation system, favorable business climate, and ample opportunities for development. However, it is worth remembering that the purchase of a ready-made business in the United States and its further prosperity may be jeopardized by mismanagement, poor knowledge of US laws, or deception on the part of a broker or previous owner.

Why You Should Purchase A Business in the US
Buying a business in the United States is a way to permanently gain a foothold in a country with one of the most powerful economies in the world. This method is one of the most reliable for those who are thinking about business immigration, since buying a company in the United States is a less expensive and less risky process than starting a business from scratch in a country with a highly competitive environment.
For Russian citizens, there are several immigration programs that support entrepreneurs investing or buying existing American companies, these are L-1, EB-5, EB1C, and E-2 (only for countries that are parties to the treaty with the United States).
Given the political and economic situation in Russia, many wealthy Russians are considering buying a business in the United States, as they want to secure and increase their capital, and ensure a happy future for themselves and their families. In this case, the support of entrepreneurship from the United States government, a developed domestic market, and, of course, the laws on confidentiality of information in force in the country play an important role. To date, this is the most stringent legislation protecting the personal data of its residents. Anyone who is considering buying a business in the United States should remember that the choice of a company depends on many factors.
Choosing a Ready-Made Business in the US
The first step in preparing to buy a business in the United States is usually choosing the area in which the company will operate. You can choose a business that you are already familiar with in your home country. For example, if you are engaged in construction, then a real estate development business may be suitable for you, and for someone who is already familiar with the restaurant business, buying a cafe or diner may be suitable. It is best to choose a business that will be in demand among the residents of your state or the entire country.
The next step in buying a business in the United States is choosing the state in which it will be registered. Your future taxation depends on this, as tax laws differ from state to state. We recommend purchasing a business in the state in which you plan to live – in this case, the process of business management and immigration will be easier. At the same time, do not forget that even if you have achieved success in entrepreneurship in your home country, you will still need to learn how to do business in the United States. After all, the market itself, as well as the standards and rules for each country, are different.
Having a clear idea of where, what kind, and the value of the business you want to acquire, you need to start looking for suitable offers. The US market offers many business options for sale from various brokers. Most of them seek to sell the offer they have as soon as possible and at a higher price, without paying sufficient attention to the quality and reliability of the business. After all, the company being sold may turn out to be unprofitable, or have any debts, tax problems, or others that prompted the previous owner to put his business up for auction. The purchase of such a company can bring losses to the new owner, as well as negatively affect the receipt of an immigrant visa and a green card. That is why we recommend that all persons interested in buying a business in the U.S. seek professional help from specialists.
Next, you need to conduct a full analysis of the company for its reliability and compliance with immigration requirements. These include turnover, actual profit, staff, as well as projected profit and return on investment. At this stage, you will also need the advice of an immigration attorney to check the business for visa compliance. Professional assistance at this stage can save you from ruin and loss of investment, as well as significantly increase your chances of obtaining an immigrant visa and a US Green Card.
