Free EB-5 Evaluation

Can an employer make an EB-5 investment in a new commercial enterprise (NCE) on behalf of an employee?

No, an EB-5 investment must be made using the personal assets of the investor. If an employer is interested in helping an employee make an EB-5 investment, the funds would have to be transferred to the investor in some way. For example, the money could be paid out to the investor as salary or dividends; it could be loaned to the investor, for instance, through a shareholder loan; or it could be given as a gift to the investor.
