When you form a new Virginia LLC or Virginia corporation, you have to choose a name for your new entity. Over time, you may decide that a name change is appropriate. It is possible to change the legal name of your Virginia limited liability company or Virginia corporation by making a filing with the Virginia State Corporation Commission. You will need the agreement of the other owners of your company.
We can handle the rest for you. We can prepare and file the necessary paperwork to change your company name for a flat fee of $99, which includes the filing fee paid to the Virginia SCC. Just click on this link to our name change page for more information or to get started.When the name change is complete, the SCC will issue a Certificate of Amendment with your new name, which we will send to you for your records and use.
Once the name change has been noted by the State Corporation Commission, you will need to update other government agencies that you deal with or have accounts with, such as the IRS, Virginia Department of Taxation, or local county or city governments with business licenses, so they will update their records. Of course, you also want to notify your bank so they'll accept checks payable to the new company name.
