The annual assessment shall be submitted with the initial application and with each renewal application. When the annual assessment due is less than $1,000, the common interest community manager shall submit documentation of gross receipts for the preceding calendar year with each annual assessment in order to verify the annual assessment amount due. Documentation of gross receipts is not required from common interest community managers that submit the maximum annual assessment amount of $1,000. Acceptable documentation may include, but is not limited to, audits, tax returns, or financial statements.

Provisional licenses will be subject to the annual assessment for each year that the provisional license is in effect. When the annual assessment due is less than $1,000, the common interest community manager shall submit documentation of gross receipts for the preceding calendar year with each annual assessment in order to verify the annual assessment amount due. Documentation of gross receipts is not required from common interest community managers that submit the maximum annual assessment amount of $1,000. Acceptable documentation may include, but is not limited to, audits, tax returns, or financial statements.

Provisional licensees must submit annual proof of current bond or insurance policy in accordance with 18VAC48-50-30 E, and are also subject to the provisions of 18VAC48-50-150 D.
