Sounds good Judith - I can do anytime between 6:00 - 7:15pm CT tomorrow evening, or on Sunday morning at your convenience. Please confirm. I have submitted all the details below so everything is in one place for your review. Please also provide me your telephone number as I won't have access to skype or a computer tomorrow evening for our call - my email is***@******.***. I will be calling you from(###) ###-#### Warm regards. VickQuestion:I am a small-business owner based out of Canada. I own a dry cleaning business here that I have been running for the past 15-17 yrs. There are 4-5 employees in Canada in my business. I am in the process of purchasing an operating home health business in Florida, USA. I will be investing substantial capital (details below). The home-health agency has about 40-50 staff. We can own the home health business either through my Canadian dry cleaning company, or we can set up a new company to own it, depending on the immigration requirements. In my situation, would an L1A or an E2 visa be appropriate in your opinion.
Also, I do not plan on selling my DC business, as it will just continue to run. So I will be keeping the DC business here in Canada and also running the home-health agency in Florida.My cash at risk would be approximately $750k USD initially for a 50% interest in an existing home health business. Thereafter, I would inject an additional $330k, for the balance of the ownership interest in equal payments of $130k every quarter, with total business purchase investment of $1.1m USD, plus working capital injection of $80-100k USD. The health agency has current annual sales of about $1.8m USD. The ultimate goal would be to obtain green card, but I am not fussed about not having it. I just want to be able to run and grow the business in USA.Citizenship
: I am a Canadian citizen and have been based out of Canada since September 1996.Education background: Industrial engineer from University of North Carolina Chapel Hill (graduated 1991). I also have a chemical engineering undergraduate degree from University of Punjab in Lahore Pakistan (1983).Work experience: I have worked for a large pharmaceutical company, Glaxo Pharmaceuticals, from 1983 - 1996, as director of logistics and strategy, managing over 1000 staff.
I have been involved in the dry cleaning business here in Canada since 1999. I have two small dry cleaning depots here in Toronto, and I usually serve the customers along with a few other staff. There are a large number of senior customers in my dry cleaning business, so that customer service component and my managerial experience from Glaxo would be transferable to the home health business.Kindly let me know your thoughts as to whether L1A or E2 visa would be appropriate in my situation, and how much you would charge for the same services. We are also in the process of finalizing the purchase sale agreement.Thanks so much Judith -
