LatourLaw’s investor clients (and regular readers!) know that we are exceedingly selective when it comes to approving immigration investment opportunities for our clients.  Latourlaw made the decision to introduce Pafilia’s outstanding properties and the Cyprus EU Passport program only after extensively vetting the folks behind the company and meeting with company principals in person.  LatourLaw is proud to announce Pafilia as our exclusive Cyprus EU Passport and Permanent Residency offering.

With the current global concerns over the coronavirus situation, prospective passport investors are keen to avoid unnecessary international travel; at the same time, global uncertainties highlight the need for the security and flexibility offered by an EU passport. Several weeks ago, LatourLaw Vietnam Director Monica Pham and I visited Cyprus to meet with Pafilia’s management and comprehensively comprehensive tour the company’s diverse and beautiful portfolio of passport investment properties. During our visit, we expressed the concerns voiced by our prospective passport investors from Vietnam, citing both their urgency to commit to the passport program but their reluctance to travel. Specifically we asked them this:g these travel concerns.  We asked them this:

What can we do to insure that during this time of PEAK demand for the Cyprus EU Passport and Permanent Residency solution, LatourLaw’s Vietnam investors could move forward with their investment WITHOUT making the long trip to beautiful Cyprus?

Pafilia’s Management worked quickly with us to find a solution and we are now proud to introduce our “Invest NOW – Confirm LATER” Cyprus Passport Investment Option”, a 100% GUARANTEED solution to those ready to move forward but not wanting to travel internationally given global health concerns.

EB-5 Regional Program Extended Until 11-21-19

Yesterday, Congress passed and the President signed a  Continuing Resolution (a temporary extension of funding) extending the EB-5 Regional Center Program through November 21, the day when new EB-5 reforms kick in.   On November 21, AVS EB-5 will be one among a handful of Regional Centers offering bona fide TEA/Rural area projects at the new $900,000 TEA level investment amount.   The other 90+% of EB-5 projects on the market will now require a minimum investment of $1.8M.

AVS – $500K Direct EB-5 Slots

With only 3 months to go before the price of EB-5 jumps from $500K TEA/$1M non-TEA to $900K TEA/$1.8M non-TEA, AVS EB5 is getting many inquiries from last-minute investors wanting to beat the clock.  As I explain below, we DO have a few DIRECT EB-5 slots remaining at the $500K level, but we are deferring the launch of our next Regional Center project offering until AFTER the price change.  Sounds crazy, right?  It isn’t.  Here’s the problem: Regional Center projects rely on complex econometric modeling to count jobs.  Let’s say a Regional Center project is raising $20M in EB-5 capital and is halfway there by November.  That means the first half of the investors in the EB-5 limited partnership will be $500K investors, but if the project is among the 95% of current projects on the market with false TEA status, that means the OTHER half of the investors will

Part 3: Offshore Trusts- An Alternative to Liquidation

Pre-Immigration Tax Planning Via Offshore Trusts [IMPORTANT NOTE: The subject of global taxation is immensely complex and varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.  The scope of this article is broad and does not constitute legal advice.  Any individual concerned about global tax implications needs to discuss the subject in detail with qualified tax advisors in both their home country and in the foreign countries in which they are investing and/or considering as a future immigration destination.] For many investors, the idea of liquidating their assets to avoid future immigration-triggered taxation is unpalatable.   In such cases, especially when the investor has extensive holdings abroad and is unable/unwilling to liquidate them, a properly structured offshore trust can provide the necessary legal insulation against future immigration-triggered taxation on global assets.
