How to Move Your LLC to Wyoming
Wyoming LLC Domestication
What is Domestication?
Domestication, when it comes to Wyoming LLCs, means moving an existing company that is registered in a different state to Wyoming. The state officially refers to this transaction as a Foreign Limited Liability Company Articles of Continuance in Wyoming.
What are the Advantages of Domesticating in Wyoming?
If you have an LLC registered in a different state, you don’t receive the benefits of Wyoming’s tax structure or the state’s strong asset protection laws. Wyoming is also an inexpensive state to operate a business in compared to expensive states like Nevada. To enjoy the advantages of operating a business in Wyoming, you may consider simply dissolving your current LLC and starting a new one in Wyoming. That certainly would be an option, but you would lose your original date of organization and may need to do a lot of busy work (new operating agreements, new stationary, new everything)–you’d basically be starting all over. With domestication, your company and its date of organization, credit ratings, and governing documents remain intact. The only thing that changes is your business’s address.
How To Domesticate An LLC In Wyoming
Get a Certificate of Good Standing from your home State. In many states, you can do this online for a small fee. Your LLC must be in good standing with your current state before your can move.
You’ll also need to get a current certified copy of your LLC’s Articles of Organization. In many states, this can be obtained online, but in others, you may need to wait one to two weeks.
Before completing Wyoming’s documents, you’ll need to create a resolution stating that the members have agreed to domesticate the LLC in Wyoming, and dissolve the LLC in its home state. There’s no official form and the resolution could even be hand written. The important thing is that resolution constitutes proof that all members agree on the move.
Wyoming Secretary of State also needs to see that you’ve filled out the Articles of Dissolution in your home state, but do not yet file this document. It will be that final document to file, as you want to make sure Wyoming approves your LLC before moving forward.
Now you can file the Articles of Continuance in Wyoming. You’ll need to include copies of your LLC’s: resolution, certified Articles of Organization, Certificate of Good Standing, and the unfiled Articles of Dissolution. The Articles of Continuance cost $100 to file. Wyoming Secretary of State wait times are about one week.
Do NOT file dissolution documents until receiving confirmation form Wyoming!
After receiving confirmation from Wyoming that the Articles of Continuance, file the Articles of Dissolution in what was formerly known as your home state, then wave goodbye! Your new home is now Wyoming!
Be aware that certain states have more rigorous LLC dissolution processes than others
(New York LLC dissolutions are no fun).
