Wyoming USA Limited Liability Company (LLC) Company Formation
Wyoming LLCs combine the protections of a corporation with the tax advantages of a partnership. Incorporating an LLC in Wyoming offers extensive confidentiality for the directors and shareholders as there is complete privacy regarding who owns or runs the corporation. Wyoming state does not share taxpayer information with the Internal Revenue Service.
Company names must be unique and not deceptively similar to other company names registered in Wyoming. We are able to check that your proposed company name is appropriate. Limited Liability Company names must end with the suffix LLC or LC and Incorporations must end with the suffix Co, Corp, Inc or Ltd. It is also possible to use the full word rather than the abbreviation. Certain words such as Bank, Mortgage and Loan require approval from the Department of Financial Regulation to use.
Companies require a registered agent and a registered office where the Secretary of State and other official parties may send legal documents. Companies are not obliged to have their registered office in Wyoming. If the company’s registered office is in Wyoming you may act as your own registered agent, however, if it is outside of Wyoming we can provide you with a resident agent as part of our Corporate Administration Package.
