My clients were husband and wife. Husband had extensive management experience and wife had extensive experience in the hair design area. They purchased assets from an existing hair salon fora substantial mount of capital. The source of the investment was a gift from my client’s sister, which was well documented along with complete tracing of the funds to the purchase of the business assets.
My clients also created a business plan to create a unique, innovative upscale boutique salon. They leased the same premises as the seller and found employees when we filed the visa application. The interview went well and my client is now running a successful hair stalon.
