Success F inan ce
An increasing number of foreign nationals are investing in or establishing
businesses in the U.S. either to diversify their portfolio or to expand their
existing business into a new market. I typically see 3 scenarios under
which foreign nationals invest in businesses in the U.S.: 1.) Expansion
of an existing foreign business into the U.S.; 2.) An individual who
has aspired to own a certain type of business and the U.S. is the most
receptive environment to establish the business; or 3.) An investor has
recognized an emerging market or technology and desires to capitalize
on the opportunity. The investor must decide what type of entity to
utilize. Another consideration is whether to buy an existing “turnkey”
operation or to begin a new venture. When buying the former, it’s
important to examine the company and its history. We provide advice to
domestic and foreign clients and help them understand the many aspects
associated with investing in and structuring a business venture in the
U.S. The above considerations are only a brief overview and I recommend
that anyone considering investing in any business consult the appropriate
tax and legal advisors.
