Wyoming LLC: Non-Resident Options
The Wyoming LLC has fast become one of the most popular US corporate structures. There are several reasons for this, not the least of which include enhanced privacy and low cost. In fact, in addition to being one of the lowest-cost LLCs in the entire United States, the Wyoming LLC is also considered anonymous.
That said, it’s not entirely anonymous. While it’s true that the Secretary of State does not have your name filed in their records, it is still listed with the registered agent and can be obtained by the State with appropriate notice. But, it is not listed on any publicly available registries.
Additionally, one of the other benefits that come from being a popular option for non-residents is that a Wyoming LLC can open bank accounts. In fact, while other US LLCs struggle to open accounts, non-resident business owners can navigate account opening options, including 100% remotely.
