If ensure that your investment fairs as smoothly as possible keep these three things to know about foreign investments in mind:

  1. Because of estate tax and other issues structure the purchase before viewing properties. The corporate entity that the propertybs name will be under should be set up before choosing a building or office space.
  2. When it comes to financing be sure to comply with currency rules in your home country and know cash transactions must be times and deadlines for escrow funds and closing cannot be moved.
  3. Be sure to have the correct visa for the amount of time you plan to spend in the states.B The best visas require a direct investment in an American company in the United States or establishment of a local subsidiary of a foreign company
