LLC Article FAQ
If the document requires a signature, is the LLC no longer anonymous?
This is actually a very good question. The LLC can remain anonymous if you select a professional formation service. In this situation, they will place a name, address, email, as well as a phone number for all public information. There is not an extra charge for this service if you decide to continue with us. However, many other services do charge an additional fee for this service. This is why you will want to pay careful attention when placing an order. When the Articles have been accepted, there is no way to have the redacted. We have had a number of clients who had their filing done incorrectly and wish they would have started the process with us.
Is A Registered Agent In Wyoming Required?
Yes, you are unable to use an agent from another state if you live elsewhere. Every company is required to have an agent who is physically located within the state of Wyoming. The agent is needed to act as the public face of the company, so you are able to remain anonymous. If you are unable to comply with maintaining an agent, your company will be dissolved.
Can I Review Them Before Filing?
Your documents will not be submitted for review. One of the few things that will change from one filing to another is the name of the company and the address if you plan to purchase a unique or virtual office. Other than the name, there is really nothing else that will need to be reviewed.
