Virginia Business Address

Having a business address is an important part of forming and maintaining your company with the Virginia Secretary of the Commonwealth. When establishing a new Virginia LLC you’re required to include a principal office address, and when forming a new Virginia corporation you must provide addresses for your company’s initial directors. If you’re a business owner who works from home or runs a business remotely, you might be tempted to use your personal address on these formation documents. But that would be a mistake.

Why? Your formation documents are made public once you file them. This means that if you include your home address in your formation documents, it’ll be made public.

At Virginia Professional Services, we not only understand the importance of having a reliable and reputable business address. As your registered agent, we provide one for your state filing, completely free.

Benefits of a Professional Business Address

For many small business owners, having a professional business address that’s different from your home address is important for one very good reason: privacy. If you use your home address on your formation documents it will be made public, which opens you up to the possibility of unwanted mail and tons of spam. Using a professional business address protects you from aggressive solicitors.

Not only that, having a professional business address can lend credibility to your company. Our address is located in Richmond, near the state Capitol. When you form your business with us, the address on your formation documents is one centered in the the state’s business district.
