Step two: Complete the Articles of Organization

We will assist you with completing the Wyoming Articles of Organization form in this phase. The “Articles” are divided into four categories.

To complete the form, you will need the following information:

Name of the Entity

Name of the Registered Agent and the Address of the Registered Office

Mailing and Business Address

Name of the Entity

A unique and clever company name is crucial, but it is not as necessary as a legally valid name.

When selecting a name for your company, you must ensure that the name:

conforms to Wyoming naming standards

is not currently in use by another Wyoming firm

The Wyoming Naming Guidelines should be followed:

Your business name must contain the words “limited liability company” or “limited company” or one of its acronyms (LLC, L.L.C., LC, L.C.). The word “limited” may be shortened as “ltd,” and the term “company” as “co.”

A low profit limited liability company must have one of the following designations: L3C, l3c, low profit limited liability company, low profit limited liability co., or low profit limited liability co.

Your name cannot indicate that the LLC was formed for a purpose other than the one specified in its articles of incorporation.

Your LLC’s name cannot include any words or phrases that imply it is established under the Wyoming Business Corporation Act, the Wyoming Statutory Close Corporation Supplement, or the Nonprofit Corporation Act.

Any of the following terms (or words with similar meanings) must be approved by the state Division of Banking: bank, banker, banc, bancorp, bancorporation, banque, banquers, banco, banca, trust.

Any of the following terms must be approved by the state Department of Education: academy, college, educate, education, educational, institute, institution, school, or university.

Names that begin with the letter “A” followed by a space or punctuation, include special characters, or are in a language other than English must be reviewed again by the Wyoming Secretary of State.

Your name must be distinct from any other current company in the state. Wyoming reserved names are included.

Examine Name Availability:

Is your surname legal in Wyoming? Check the Wyoming Secretary of State’s website to see if the name you desire isn’t already taken.

Obtain a Domain Name:

We suggest that you check to see whether your company’s name is accessible as a web domain. Even if you don’t intend to create a company website right away, you may wish to purchase the URL to prevent others from doing so.

Registered Office and Registered Agent

A registered agent receives and transmits legal paperwork on behalf of your LLC. When you form your Wyoming LLC, you must provide your registered agent and registered office address.

Your registered agent may be anybody over the age of 18 who resides in Wyoming. During regular business hours, your registered agent must always be accessible at the registered office.

Your registered office address cannot be only a P.O. box.

Mailing and Business Address

You must include the principal office address and postal address for your LLC.

Step 3: Submit the Articles of Incorporation.

You must submit the Articles of Organization with the Secretary of State to register your LLC.

You may submit your Articles of Organization in two ways:

Fill out the form online.

Send a hard copy through mail.

Steps to Take After Forming Your Wyoming LLC

After filing your Articles of Organization, you should do the following:

Make a Business Agreement

Obtain an EIN

Establish a Business Bank Account

Purchase Licenses and Permits

Make a Business Agreement

A Wyoming LLC operating agreement is a legal document that details your LLC’s ownership structure and member functions.

Although an Operating Agreement is not necessary in Wyoming to incorporate an LLC, it is a good idea to have one. You may begin working on your operating agreement before, during, or after filing your Articles of Organization.

Your operating agreement will be held in the private business records of your LLC; you will not submit it with the state.

Obtain an EIN

An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is your LLC’s equivalent of a social security number. If you want to recruit staff or create company bank accounts, you’ll need an EIN.

You may get your EIN for free by using the IRS website, fax, or mail. Read our What is an EIN article to discover more about EINs and how they might benefit your LLC.

Establish a Business Bank Account

It is critical to use specific business banking and credit accounts to safeguard your company’s corporate veil. When you combine your personal and company accounts, your personal assets (house, vehicle, and other possessions) are at danger if your LLC is sued.

Purchase Licenses and Permits

When forming an LLC, you should consider if your company requires any licences or permissions to operate legally. There are a few commercial operations that need licences or permissions on the federal level.

Learn how to secure the licences and permissions required for your company, or hire an expert to handle it for you:

Federal: For federal business licences and permits, see the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

State: Visit The State of Wyoming’s Business Council website to apply for or learn more about licences, permits, and registration.
