You haven't given your personal circumstances.

What's your company's turnover? How long has it been trading? How many people does it employ? Could it be run without you there? How much capital have you got?

Company Turnover per annum: £145,000
only been in business 2 years
its a self employed business,no employee's
it could be run without me there,so long as i hired an co-executor to the company

Doubt the business is substantial enough to qualify for an L1.

You need some employees and a suitable company structure to support those employees to have a hope of getting an L1 visa. Don't forget that the visa came about for the likes of Microsoft and General Motors to move their staff to the US. Whilst you don't need to be in that league, a one-man band probably ain't going to do it.

You can look at the E2, too, if you think you have a good business plan. But applications through London usually expect at least a couple of hundred k on the table, more than the L1. In addition, the journey to living here permanently is more complicated.

If the company becomes mutli-million dollar, your worries are at an end. You can just buy a green card on an EB5 ticket and do whatever you like once you get here.

Let's start from the beginning.
What triggers his urgency? Why AL? Where in AL? What kind of business are you running in UK? Do you have 500k to invest at risk?

EB5 costs $0.5M or $1M -- two totally different programs. The cheaper program is due to sunset (expire) soon, but Congress keep giving it another 6 months of life every time this happens. Whether they will this time is anyone's guess.
