Starting July 1, 2024, all new businesses registering with Virginia Tax will need to do so online. 

For resources for how to register online, see Register a Business in Virginia. You’ll find a step-by-step guide and a checklist to make sure you have everything you need before you start the process.  

Keep in mind:  

  • Before registering with Virginia Tax, most new businesses will need to get a federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) from the IRS, and some will need to register with the State Corporation Commission.   
  • If a new business plans to hire employees, they can register with the Virginia Employment Commission (VEC) at the same time they register online with Virginia Tax.
