Generally, Virginia incorporation bylaws are written to manage the corporation’s business and to conduct the corporation’s affairs so long as the bylaws do not conflict with the articles of incorporation. A corporation maintains its bylaws at its principal executive office and is not required to file them with the state. United Agent Services will provide customized bylaws for your Virginia corporation based on the operation requirements that you specify.

Incorporators may adopt initial bylaws if not already done so by the board of directors.
