Wyoming Limited Liability Company (LLC)

Why publish personal information, pay more and make your assets easy for creditors to seize?
The answer is you shouldn't - and that's why Wyoming exists.

Wyoming was the first state to allow LLCs and leads the nation to this day. Forming a Wyoming LLC is easy and can be done online. We have a same day guarantee and our total price is $199. All the information we need to form your llc is on this form.

Wyoming LLC Benefits


We have a business friendly culture which values low fees, no taxes and strict privacy. Many states charge more in filing fees, put your personal information into a searchable database and won't respect your single member LLC when it matters most. These benefits make Wyoming Limited Liability Companies popular regardless of where you live:

Low Fees

We charge $199 the first year. Future years cost $50 to file the annual report and $25 to maintain our registered agent service.

Privacy

Anonymously own your company so nosy neighbors, needy family members and aggressive creditors can't take advantage of you.

Asset Protection

Charging order protection for Single Member LLCs. Ideal for small businesses and holding companies.  

No Taxes

No tax on personal or corporate income - ever. No need to file state tax returns.

Simplicity

Your LLC can be formed online. An operating agreement is not required and close LLCs are allowed.

WY LLC FAQ


Do I need an EIN?

The only time you won't require one is if you are solely using the LLC to title assets. If you intend on opening a bank, have more than one member, or have employees, then you will need one. We can handle this for you or you can read our guide for obtaining it in your own here. The whole process takes about 20m. 

Is an operating agreement required?

You are not required to have an operating agreement in Wyoming. There are good reasons to still have one though:
 

  • It can be used to hold all members and managers to account by requiring best practices be maintained. 
  • It codifies the percentage each owner has and what they are expected to contribute. Not memorializing such things via writing makes future disputes immeasurably harder. 
  • Banks often ask for them when opening an account. 

We provide different operating agreements depending on whether you have one owner or multiple and if you are professionally managed. We don't believe one size fits all and are happy to help you find the agreement which best fits your needs. 

Why would someone want to anonymously own a company?

There are many reasons to desire private ownership - it is not unnatural or a sign of being up to no good.  Have you considered hanging a billboard around your neck which displayed your net worth and account numbers? Of course not, so why make your business affairs viewable to everybody?

What does it mean to have the nation's best asset protection?

The two largest benefits are:

  • Respecting single member LLCs: Other states will allow corporate creditors to pierce the corporate veil. The argument is a company with one owner is simply an alter ego and deserves no protection. Wyoming has written specific statutes which state single member LLCs cannot be discriminated against. 
  • Charging order protection: In other states, if a personal creditor secures a judgment they can break into your LLC. They can force asset sales and distributions. Wyoming does not allow this. Your company will be free to continue operating. 
Wyoming LLC Taxes

Limited liability companies offer the ability to be taxed as disregarded entities, partnerships, s-corps and c-corps. This flexibility lets you choose the best option for your situation.  Wyoming does not require an annual tax filing. This makes the state popular for holding companies. 

Why not choose a Nevada LLC?

Nevada does not have statutes written specifically for Single Member LLCs. This means you have less protection and more uncertainty when seeking asset protection.

Nevada LLCs were popular, until fees increased for seven straight years. Now, our total price is LESS than just the Nevada Secretary of State fees. You will pay $300 in state fees BEFORE you find and pay for a service like ours.

Wyoming LLC Fees

Wyoming's Secretary of State only charges $50 per year to keep your company open. There is even a 60 day grace period for failing to file your annual report on time. Inside of this period there are no penalties. 

  • Name Change $50
  • Amendment to Articles of Organization $50
  • Updating Mailing Address $0
  • Adding or Removing Members $0
Wyoming LLC Privacy

Wyoming LLCs are private by design. The Secretary of State never asks who the owners of a company are. They only want the name and address of whomever forms the company (us). Your information does not go into a database anywhere and is not searchable by anyone.

We take your privacy seriously and will never disclose your information to anyone.
