Accountants (some of which are certified and referred to as CPAs) often assist EB-5 participants at many different stages of the EB-5 program. Accountants help maintain financial records and provide reports that are crucial to the EB-5 visa application process. One of an accountant's most important EB-5 tasks is proving that all investment funds originate from lawful sources. Accountants can make it far easier for EB-5 visa applicants to prove that their EB-5 visa project will satisfy all of the financial requirements of USCIS. This includes helping applicants with their I-526 applications and I-829 applications.
Accountants are also a crucial resource for EB-5 Regional Centers. Accountants help prepare the financial documents necessary to file the I-924 application for regional center designation. Accountants are also crucial for providing evidence that all program requirements are being met on the annual I-924A reports that must be filed with USCIS.
An accountant experienced with EB-5 investing should be able to provide a complete range of tax services, including the following:
- Individual tax planning
- Creation, implementation, and management of U.S. organizational structure
- Reorganization of current corporate operations (foreign/U.S.)
- Overall corporate operations
- Estate planning
