Thank you for your answer Gupta. I was never explained all this by my attorney.
I want to give you some more facts and will try to be as concise as possible in a way this can help other members in this community as well as to clarify more for me.
When my L1 visa got approved three years ago, the company was opening so it had zero revenue and 7 employees.
Today the company has 2 employees (including myself) and 450K on total revenues.
When I got hired, three years ago, I generated business 10 times more than expected. For two years the company was doing amazing. However, our business had only one huge client and I decided to focus on customer service and delivering vs new sales. The client we got unexpectedly shut down its operations and 2017 we came down to 1.5 million sales instead of the 15 -20 million sales we had made in 2015 and 2016.
2018 our revenue was 480K. It was a year of cutting expenses, reorganizing the business and literally start the business plan from scratch. So yes, the company today has very low sales compared with 2015-2017 but has no mayor debt, taxes are paid on time, and business is healthy. It only has two employees and outsource everything as needed.
The company needs me because I am a great business developer, have been on this business for 20 years, I am very talented at sales and know how to operate at very low costs. Without the huge client we got before we certainly won’t do the 15 million dollars sales but I believe we can make 3-5 millions in revenue by 2020. The only thing I need right now is time to continue running the company.
Is all the above relevant?
Our migration attorney says if the company doesn’t prove revenue of at least 1.5 million and at least 5 managers under my supervision the L1 visa won’t get renewed. I can’t achieve the 1.5 million in revenue “today”.
And yes, the business could hire 3 managers but it would hurt the company finances badly.
What do you recommend?
Thank you in advance.
