File Your Limited Liability Company LLC Online Yourself
Instructions For Filing A New Limited Liability Company.
Go to https://wyobiz.wy.gov/Business/FilingSearch.aspx to check name availability.
Go to https://wyobiz.wy.gov/Business/RegistrationInstr.aspx to begin your registration.
Click the Green START NOW button. (There is a lot of helpful information on this page)
There is a drop-down menu where you have to choose your entity type. There is a click box at the bottom of the page, click that box.
Enter the name of your company. You’ll be asked to enter it a second time for verification. You MUST have LLC in the name of your business. Using a comma to separate the name and LLC is not necessary if you do not wish to use it.
Enter WYOMING DISCOUNT REGISTERED AGENT in the Organization box. Click Search When the name of our company comes up, click on our name. The Registered Agent information will automatically populate.
There is a click box at the bottom asking if you have permission from your registered agent. Click this box only if you’ve registered at our site.
The next screen is the opportunity to list your business address, both principle and mailing address. You are more than welcome to use our address for some added privacy. Our administrative office’s address is: 1111 S. Roop Street, #100, Carson City, NV 89702.
The next screen is for your Organizer. This is the person asking for the company to be started. This is the only time you’ll be asked to list anyone associated with the company.
The next screen is for adding additional verbiage to your Articles of Organization. This step is completely optional in most cases. If you do not want to add to the wording of your Articles of Organization, click the Next button. However, if your company’s name is in a foreign language, there are instructions for what you need to do in blue writing. Follow those instructions.
The next page is a confirmation page. This is your last chance to make certain everything is correct. If you need to make changes, click the “Previous” button at the bottom of the page.
The next screen is the signature screen. Here you will digitally sign the filing. In most cases, the signature will be done by the Organizer. But if you are the attorney or CPA for the LLC, you can sign with those titles.
The next step is the Payment page. There you will enter your MasterCard or Visa number (Wyoming does not accept American Express or Discover) in the top half of the screen. In the lower half, you’ll enter your contact information. This is the information associated with your credit card.
After clicking the submit button, a screen will come up with two links. These are your credit card receipt and your completed Articles of Organization. Click on the PDF icons to download these documents. You’ll need to receipt for your credit card statement and as a record of this expense for your taxes. You’ll need the Articles as a record that you started the company. We suggest you print a copy for your corporate book and save the PDF to your computer as well.
You are now a Wyoming LLC!
If ever you need a copy of your Articles of Organization, go to https://wyobiz.wy.gov/Business/FilingSearch.aspx Search the name of your company. Then, go to the “History” tab on your company’s listing. All of your documents will be there in PDF format. This is a very useful tool if you need to quickly access those documents.
Next, let’s get your Employer Identification Number from the IRS.
Go To the IRS EIN Assistant
Choose LLC and proceed. The questions are straight forward and easy to answer. Just follow the instructions.
Next, you need to order your LLC Document Book.
Every Limited Liability Company needs a Document Book. It can be formal or informal. Even though you can use a binder from Wal Mart and make a book up yourself, I suggest you buy one from Blumberg Excelsior. It is much more professional.
Either go to the Blumberg Excelsior website or call them at 800.221.2972.
I like the Burgundy Beauty for $75.00 but check out their website and order the one that you like best. They come with a corporate seal, certificates, transfer ledger, dividers, and minute paper. You can order their kits with printed minutes and By-Laws or you can download the ones on this site. Your choice.
And finally, it is time to open your LLC Bank Account.
You will need to show all banks your:
- Filed Articles of Incorporation.
- Filed Initial List
- Letter from the IRS confirming your new EIN number.
Your bank may ask for additional items. Give them a call and ask what other items you need to bring with you.
