The Brunswick County IDA provides regulatory interface assistance to businesses new to Virginia and entering Brunswick County. The IDA works through its partner, the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, to accommodate the needs of these businesses; we also provide assistance in fast-tracking any necessary Brunswick County regulatory permits.

Some permitting authority may be required on both the state and county level; your IDA partner will advise you when one and/or both levels, state and local, are required. Virginia regulatory departments and commissions that may be involved with entry permitting are:
