Virginia Registered Agent Services
Virginia is a fairly straightforward state to form your business in. For every corporation or LLC formed in Virginia, there must also be a registered agent. According to Virginia state law, every business entity formed and registered with the Corporation Commission must appoint a registered agent to accept service of process on behalf of the business entity. A Virginia registered agent also receives the business’s official notifications.
What Does a Virginia Registered Agent Do?
The primary duty of a Virginia registered agent is to maintain a physical location in Virginia (known as a registered office) where the agent can receive and accept service of process and official mail during all normal business hours. This is essentially the statutory requirement for a Virginia registered agent.

Why it’s Important to Have a Virginia Registered Agent:
When someone needs to deliver a lawsuit, tax notification, or highly sensitive mail to your Virginia LLC or corporation, they contact your registered agent in Virginia. If your Virginia registered agent is incompetent or inefficient at delivering notifications to you, lawsuits and defaults could move against you through the court system without you ever knowing it. That’s why retaining the services of a highly qualified registered agent like Registered Agents Inc. is imperative.

Requirements for Virginia Registered Agents
To become a Virginia registered agent as an individual, you must be a resident of Virginia and either a principal of the company (for corporations, a director, and for LLCs, a member or manager) or a member of the Virginia State Bar. To be a registered agent as a business, your company must be registered to transact business in Virginia, either as a domestic or foreign entity. Either way, you must have a physical address (registered office) in Virginia, where you can accept and sign for service of process and official mail during normal business hours. That means P.O. boxes and virtual offices are not acceptable. You are required to physically be at an address Virginia, ready to accept notifications and service of process throughout the working day. If you meet these requirements, you could list your own name or business name as a registered agent. Your company, however, cannot be its own registered agent.
