Wow, 5 seconds of Web searching told me this much. As I said, I'm a DC based Web Developer. I did not indicate anywhere in my message that I have a registered agent in VA, nor do I. If I did, I would not have asked this question.

If I did, I would not have asked this question. My question is, does a consulting firm like mine need a registered office in a state to have clients in that state.
What my response meant was that you would have to qualify to do business in VA. To qualify you would have to have a registered agent in VA. What I suggested was that you use the office of the registered agent as your office in VA to qualify to bid.
