USCIS requires a minimum of five years of the investor's tax returns, five years of bank records and financial statements for any and all of the investor's owned businesses and/or licenses. The foreign investor should be presented to have an honest business history. If the capital for the potential investment came from a single transaction, such as a sale of property, inheritance or gift, the investor should provide evidential proof of this transaction, such as a closing statment or signed contract. Other documents could be asked for depending on the case of the investor.
It is very important to note all documents should be translated to English, not in the citizen's foreign language. All documents in English should be the signed ones to turn into USCIS.
