EB-5 fund administration: An important service aligning with the Reform and Integrity Act of 2022

Administered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program gives foreign investors the ability to obtain a U.S. Green Card by investing in job-creating projects. In 2022, the Reform and Integrity Act (RIA) was passed to prevent the misuse of EB-5 funds, which had become more prevalent over the last couple of years due to an absence of oversight.

The RIA requires that EB-5 transactions need to be either audited or controlled by a fund administrator that is independent of the new commercial enterprise, regional center and job-creating entity, and must be a licensed CPA, attorney or broker-dealer.

In this Invest In the USA (IIUSA) article, Baker Tilly Manager Chris LeBeau shares why it is so important to have a capable EB-5 fund administrator as part of your team to ensure EB-5 project success.
