Helfen as an auxiliary verb with a dependent infinitive

August 12 at 08:59

When helfen is used as an auxiliary verb with a dependent infinitive, does it still take the dative? In the book "Cochran's German Review Grammar," the following examples are given:

Ich helfe das Geschäft begründen (I am helping to establish the business)

Ich habe das Geschäft begründen helfen (I helped to established the business)

Why isn't das Geschäft in the dative?
