21VAC5-45-40. Federal crowdfunding offerings.
A. An issuer that offers and sells securities in the Commonwealth in an offering exempt under federal Regulation Crowdfunding (17 CFR 227.100 through 17 CFR 227.503) and §§ 4(a)(6) and 18(b)(4)(c) of the Securities Act of 1933 (15 USC § 77a), and that either (i) has its principal place of business in the Commonwealth or (ii) sells 50% or greater of the aggregate amount of the offering to residents of the Commonwealth, shall file the following with the commission:
1. A completed Uniform Notice of Federal Crowdfunding Offering form or copies of all documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC); and
2. A consent to service of process on Form U-2 if not filing on the Uniform Notice of Federal Crowdfunding form.
B. If the issuer has its principal place of business in the Commonwealth, the filing required under subsection A of this section shall be filed with the commission when the issuer makes its initial Form C filing concerning the offering with the SEC. If the issuer does not have its principal place of business in the Commonwealth but residents of the Commonwealth have purchased 50% or greater of the aggregate amount of the offering, the filing required under subsection A of this section shall be filed when the issuer becomes aware that such purchases have met this threshold and in no event later than 30 days from the date of completion of the offering.
C. The initial notice filing is effective for 12 months from the date of the filing with the commission.
D. For each additional 12-month period in which the same offering is continued, an issuer conducting an offering under federal Regulation Crowdfunding may renew its notice filing by filing on or before the expiration of the notice filing a completed Uniform Notice of Federal Crowdfunding Offering form marked "renewal" or a cover letter or other document requesting renewal.
E. An issuer may increase the amount of securities offered in the Commonwealth by submitting a completed Uniform Notice of Federal Crowdfunding Offering form marked "amendment" or other document describing the transaction.
