Default Finding funding to by a business in the USA

Hi there,

Can anyone advise on who lends money in the UK to support an E2 investment visa. I am buying a business and I need a very small amount which I have a home I can secure against.
The issue I am having is personal loans are only given to UK residents and business loans need the company to be a UK registered one!
The USA banks which I have history with also cannot help as the asset needs to be a US based one.

thanks

Welcome to BE!

This is just a spot to say hi. You'll want to have a search around the main US forums and to ask specific questions.

You'll have trouble finding someone who will do a small business loan though and to get the visa, you need to show the funds to cover the whole deal, including living expenses separate to the business, such as a house, car, deposits for utilities etc.

You need to obtain a second mortgage, or remortgage for a greater amount, on your property in the UK. What you do with the proceeds of the loan is largely irrelevant.

Hello and welcome to BE.

As others have already said you need to re-post in the US forums...as this forum is a 'meet and greet' forum. There are plenty of people who will help you over there.
