Every business that is registered in Virginia (domestic and foreign) is required to maintain a Registered Agent within the Commonwealth. The Registered Agent is responsible for receiving official correspondence from the Virginia State Corporation Commission and is the statutory agent of the business for the purpose of receiving service of lawsuits and other legal notices. Gross & Romanick acts as the Registered Agent for hundreds of businesses. We charge a reasonable annual flat fee for this service. We have sophisticated systems in place to ensure that you will receive timely copies of any documents that are served on our office. As part of this service, we provide instructions to our clients regarding annual registration requirements. If your company is based outside of Virginia but needs to obtain a certificate to transact business in Virginia, we can assist you with the registration.
