System Modernization Project: Transforming the Way We Do Business Online
The State Corporation Commission (SCC) is transforming the way we do business online. In 2019, the SCC will launch the overhaul and modernization of a mission-critical system used to manage the Commission’s business entity and Uniform Commercial Code records. Each year, more than 600,000 businesses file documents with the Clerk’s Office to maintain their businesses in Virginia. Our new online business services will unify previously disparate user experiences, allowing businesses to complete the majority of required business filings and submissions online using a secure, web-based system.
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT
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 for fee 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.
