The following words and terms when used in this chapter shall have the following meanings unless the context clearly indicates otherwise:

"Authorized delegate," "licensee," "monetary value," "money order," and "outstanding" shall have the meanings ascribed to them in § 6.2-1900 of the Code of Virginia.

"Bureau," "commission," and "commissioner" shall have the meanings ascribed to them in § 6.2-100 of the Code of Virginia.

"Chapter 19" means Chapter 19 (§ 6.2-1900 et seq.) of Title 6.2 of the Code of Virginia.

"Generally accepted accounting principles" for purposes of Chapter 19 and this chapter means standard accounting guidelines as established and administered by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the United States Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB).

"Merchant or service provider" means a person engaged in the business of selling goods or services, but excluding a person licensed or required to be licensed under Chapter 19.

"Money transmission" for purposes of Chapter 19 and this chapter shall have the meaning ascribed to it in § 6.2-1900 of the Code of Virginia. However, the term shall not include the actions of an agent who collects funds on behalf of a merchant or service provider, provided that (i) the agent has been explicitly designated in a written agreement as an agent of the merchant or service provider; (ii) any funds collected by the agent shall be deemed for all purposes to be received by the merchant or service provider, regardless of whether the agent actually remits such funds to the merchant or service provider; (iii) the agent provides the Virginia resident with a dated receipt indicating that payment to the agent constitutes payment to the merchant or service provider; and (iv) there is no risk of loss to the Virginia resident if the agent fails to remit such resident's funds to the merchant or service provider. This definition shall not be construed to prohibit the merchant or service provider from seeking indemnification from its agent for any direct losses incurred due to the agent's failure to remit funds in accordance with its agreement.

"Reporting period" means a calendar quarter, the first six months of a calendar year, or the last six months of a calendar year, as the case may be.
