Classification: Non-registration state

Registration Fee: n/a

Renewal Fee: n/a

Registration expiration: n/a

Vermont is classified as a non-registration state because it has no laws requiring franchisors to register with the state as a franchise or business opportunity before offering or selling their franchise. Nor are there any Vermont laws specifically regulating the franchise relationship. Thus, before offering or selling a franchise in Vermont, franchisors only need to comply with the requirements of the Federal Trade Commission Amended Franchise Rule, 16 C.F.R. §§ 436.1 et seq., which among other things, requires disclosure of a validly issued Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) before entering into a franchise agreement or accepting payment from a franchisee.
