Anonymous Wyoming LLCs
Wyoming allows for LLCs to be established through registered agents. This means that the LLC members (owners), do not need to disclose their information on public paperwork.
As a result, if anyone visits the public registry for Wyoming to review corporate documents fo a Wyoming LLC, they will simply find the registered agent listed on all of the publicly available documents.
This stands in contrast to other states (e.g. Florida), where information on each of the LLC members is disclosed and publicly available through a quick online search.
Of course, setting up an anonymous LLC is still possible… if you include a Wyoming LLC as the member. But, if you’re going through all that trouble you may want to skip Florida altogether and just consider registering in Wyoming.
In the following sections, we’ll discuss how to register an LLC in Wyoming, the benefits you can access, and banking considerations.

How Do I Register an Anonymous LLC?
To register an anonymous LLC in Wyoming you will need to hire a state-registered agent. State-registered agents will then act on your behalf to prepare and file all necessary paperwork with the state.
As mentioned, all publicly available information will bear the name of the registered agent and will not include the personal information of the LLC member(s) or manager(s).
Benefits of a Wyoming LLC
In addition to offering anonymity, Wyoming LLCs also have a few other benefits that are worth considering, including:
- More cost-effective than other US LLCs
