Wyoming's Anonymous LLC

Wyoming allows the members and managers of LLCs to remain private. Only we know who forms and owns the LLC. This information is protected by attorney-client privilege. Other registered agents in Wyoming can sell your information, but we cannot. The state only knows who organized the LLC, which is us. Contrast this with other states which require a TIN/EIN and personal guarantee on the state license.

Privacy is important and should not be forsaken. The more information which appears in the public record the easier it is for creditors to pursue you and nosy neighbors and family to know your business. No one gains anything by flaunting their wealth. Discover more here about Wyoming LLC Privacy.

LLC Asset Protection

Owning and operating a company comes with inherent risks including lawsuits, damage claims and professional liabilities, just to name a few. Forming a Wyoming LLC provides members and managers protections unavailable elsewhere because many laws concerning asset protection are determined at the state level. This provides breathing room from relentless creditors and egregious attorneys.

Wyoming LLCs offer the traditional corporate veil which protects personal assets from business creditors. It also offers charging order protection, even for Single-Member LLCs, which protects business assets from personal creditors. These liabilities can arise through no fault of your own because of wayward employees, greedy customers or personal vendettas.

Handling these risks properly can prevent disastrous losses damaging to your business and or personal assets. Mitigating such risks requires you begin sooner rather than later given many asset protection plans become stronger with age and should be in place BEFORE a lawsuit or claim arises. Wyoming offers single-member LLCs. the strongest charging order protections in the USA. This benefit is extended by statute, unlike for Nevada's LLC for which it is a gray area.

Wyoming LLC Taxes

Wyoming companies have no state tax returns to file. Beyond this benefit, Limited liability companies in general have the most flexibility in determining how they will be taxed. They are taxed as pass through entities by default, but can choose corporate taxation as well if desired.

The three forms of pass through taxation are disregarded entity, partnership and the S-Corp election. Being taxed as a pass-through entity means there will be no double taxation. Those with large retained earnings, however, may take advantage of the new low federal rates by choosing corporate taxation.

The lack of taxes are another benefit Wyoming LLCs enjoy. They make our state an attractive destination for both new and established companies and High Net Worth Individuals seeking to minimize their annual taxes.
