Move Your Company to Wyoming

Companies commonly move from Delaware, Nevada, Florida, South Dakota, etc. to Wyoming. The advantages are clear and primarily revolve around privacy, cost and protection, the three important factors when forming a company.

Clients often face the choice of forming a new company or formally continuing their old one. A new company can be formed in 24 hours. If you keep the same name, then you may keep your old EIN.

Just be sure to inform the IRS of your move. A formal move requires more work and takes longer, however it is allowed to keep its original start day. If you hire use to do the work, then you don't have to do anything. We charge $475, which includes the state fee and first year of registered agent service. In future years, Wyoming charges a minimal $60 a year to file an annual report and there is no state income tax or tax return to file.

Steps For Moving A Company To Wyoming: (Nevada Is Used As An Example, But You May Follow These Steps For Most States)

Acquire original documents: Begin by ordering a certified copy of the Articles and any amendments. We recommend obtaining these via fax rather than their online set up which requires registration.

If this sounds like a hassle, don’t worry we offer a better solution. You can’t order your AOI online. Here’s how to find your supporting documents:

  1. Complete these forms
  2. Then look up your company which you can do so here to get the file number
  3. Have it mailed to you . Wyoming REQUIRES documents to be original. Fedex and UPS offer overnight service.
  4. Complete the Articles of Domestication:
    LLC Articles of Domestication
    Corporation Articles of Domestication
  5. Find a Wyoming Registered Agent : This is one of the most important parts of a Wyoming company. You are required to have one and their address is part of the public record. It’s where official correspondences are sent. If you are pursuing a Wyoming LLC for privacy then you DO NOT want to be your own registered agent as then your information will be public. Choose a professional Wyoming Registered Agent Service to avoid this.
  6. Wyoming Filing Hints
    • Date of Formation: means the date formed your company.
    • Consent to appointment of registered agent: This consent form requires an original signature and will let us represent you.
    • Duration period: A majority are formed in perpetuity.
    • You must list your business purpose. A general purpose clause, something like: “Any general business activity” is acceptable.
    • Each corporation requires a President, Director, Treasurer and Secretary. Vice President doesn’t have to be filled. LLCs do not list any of these names.
  7. Submit your filing to the WY Secretary of State:
    • Certificate of Good Standing and Certified Copy of the AOI
    • Articles of Domestication
    • Registered Agent Consent Form (We send to you)
    • One set of originals and one set of copies
    • A $100 check for the Wyoming Secretary of State
