SCC begins offering online business entity formation
The State Corporation Commission (SCC) is now offering future business owners two streamlined, online methods of forming their Virginia corporation or limited liability company (LLC).
The new SCC eFile features shorten the formation process and make Virginia one of the few states to offer online, real-time business entity formation. This is the fifth and the most robust SCC eFile release since the system debuted in December 2009.
The service is available for the formation of any new Virginia corporation or LLC. SCC eFile customers can choose between two online submission methods, depending on the complexity of the business entity’s structure. The SCC eFile Express option provides real-time formation and confirmation for simple, typically small businesses. Complex formation documents are subject to more intensive, manual review. These documents can be submitted via SCC eFile as portable document format (PDF) files. Customers are encouraged to review the filing criteria as explained on the SCC eFile website prior to any submission.
“Providing Internet access for forming new corporations and limited liability companies has been a high priority of the Commission," said Joel H. Peck, clerk of the SCC. "The recent deployment of this functionality is the crowning achievement of our SCC eFile project.”
In 2010, the SCC issued charters or certificates of organization to nearly 48,000 Virginia business entities (13,455 corporations and 34,515 LLCs).
Additional offerings are planned for the SCC eFile website. They include utilizing the PDF submission feature to accept more types of business entity documents and the ability to obtain certificates of good standing or certificates of fact for various business types.
