SCC eFile

SCC eFile offers online options for the most common business entity filings. It is a secure, convenient, and cost-effective alternative to submitting paper.

Use SCC eFile to form a Virginia stock corporation or LLC, perform registered agent changes and resignations, file corporate annual reports that do not change director or officer information, pay corporate and LLC annual registration fees, obtain certificates of good standing for corporations and certificates of fact of existence or registration for LLCs, submit articles of amendment and restatement for Virginia corporations and LLCs and articles of cancellation for LLCs; file UCC financing statements and amendments, check business entity name distinguishability and perform basic business entity searches.

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.
