Notice: corporate annual reports with director or officer changes must be submitted
by paper filing
As a result of legislation effective July 1, 2014, the Commission can no longer
accept through SCC eFile any corporate annual report that contains any change to
director or officer information. As of July 1, 2014, an annual report that contains
any director or officer change must be submitted on a paper annual report form that
has been furnished by the Commission. An annual report that does not contain any
director or officer change may be submitted online through SCC eFile.
How to request a copy of the annual report form
To request a copy of the annual report form, visit www.scc.virginia.gov/clk/ElectronicFormRequest.aspx
or contact the Clerk’s Office at (804) 371-9733 or toll free in Virginia, 1-866-722-2551.
An annual report form is no longer included with a notice of impending termination of corporate existence or revocation of certificate of authority. An annual report
that contains no change to director or officer information can be filed online through
SCC eFile. Requests for annual report forms are routinely fulfilled by mailing the
form by U.S. Mail and should be made well in advance of the filing deadline to ensure
timely delivery to the Commission of the completed annual report.
The Clerk of the Commission is the official custodian of the judicial and administrative
records of the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC).
In most instances, business entity, UCC and Commission case documents and information
on file in the Office of the Clerk are open to public examination. Personal computers,
as well as microfilm and microfiche viewers, are available on site to the public
for reviewing these documents and information.
While staff members of the Clerk's Office can provide information regarding the
requirements under Virginia law for filing a document in this office, the staff
is prohibited from providing legal or tax advice to the public. Guidance on these
matters should be obtained from a legal or tax professional. Persons needing legal
assistance may wish to contact the Virginia Lawyer Referral
Service, a service offered by the Virginia State Bar.
Notice Regarding Personal Identifiable Information
Generally, personal identifiable information such as social security or driver's
license number, date of birth, or financial institution account number should NOT
be included in business entity or Uniform Commercial Code documents submitted to
the Office of the Clerk for filing with the Commission. The person who prepares
or submits to the Clerk's Office a document for filing is responsible for ensuring
that the document contains no such information. The Clerk's Office is authorized
to obliterate, without prior notice, personal identifiable data included in a document
or refuse to accept for filing a document containing such data. However, information
contained in documents filed with the Commission is subject to public viewing.
