A Registered Agent in Wyoming provides a range of services, such as accepting formal documents and correspondence from the Wyoming Secretary of State (SOS).

Your Corporation must have Wyoming Registered Agent services at all times. You appoint one when you first start your business. You can also replace your existing agent after formation, provided there is no period during which your business is without a Registered Agent.

Wyoming Registered Agent Requirements

  • Every Corporation, domestic or foreign, must have a Registered Agent with a registered office within the State of Wyoming at all times.
  • The Registered Agent can be a domestic or foreign (licensed to transact business in the state) artificial legal entity (corporation, LLC, LP or LLP) or a natural person.
  • If the Registered Agent is a company, they must be authorized to conduct business in Wyoming.
  • If the Registered Agent is a person, they must live in Wyoming.
  • The Registered Agent must be available in person to sign for any correspondence during regular business hours.
  • The Registered Office must be located in the state of Wyoming at a street address (a P.O. Box is not acceptable)

The address for your Registered Agent in Wyoming doesn't need to be the same as your business address. In fact, you may use a Wyoming virtual mailbox for your business address.

Important: A virtual mailbox is not a replacement for a Registered Agent. They perform two separate functions and per state law, you are required to have a Registered Agent.

What Wyoming Registered Agents Do

A Registered Agent’s primary function is to accept official correspondence and documentation, including but not limited to:

This includes:

  • Correspondence from the Wyoming SOS
  • State and federal government correspondence and notices
  • Service of process notices (e.g., if your Corporation is sued or required to appear in court)
  • Tax forms and requests to complete permits, company filings and reports
  • We’re experts at incorporating LLCs

Having a Registered Agent also allows you to prove to the state that your business exists.

Appointing a Registered Agent for Your Corporation

When you're incorporating in Wyoming, you must appoint a Registered Agent at that time. You can change the agent at any time after that. Here’s how.

Assign a Registered Agent When You Form Your Corporation

Your business needs to have a Registered Agent as soon as it’s formed. You can do this two ways:


File Your Articles of Incorporation with the Wyoming SOS

When you create your business, you must include your Registered Agent's information in your Articles of Incorporation.


Get a Free Registered Agent When You Incorporate with Bizee

If you form your business through us, you’ll get our Registered Agent Service free for one year. We’ll use the information you provide to complete and file your Articles of Incorporation for you.

Assign a New Registered Agent After Formation

You can also assign someone else as your Registered Agent in Wyoming after you’ve incorporated. There are a couple of ways to do this.


Choose a New Registered Agent Service and File a Form with the Wyoming SOS

Once you’ve chosen a new Registered Agent, you can complete the Appointment of New Registered Agent/Office form available on the Secretary of State website. Once you’ve filled it out, send it to the Wyoming SOS along with a filing fee of $5 so they can update your records.


Sign up for Bizee’s Registered Agent Service and We’ll File the Change on Your Behalf

When you use our Registered Agent service, we take care of all the form filling and filing for you. We’ll collect the pertinent information about your business, complete the form and send it to the Secretary of State on your behalf. We’ll notify you when we officially become your Registered Agent.

Search for Wyoming Registered Agents

In some situations, you may need to know the name of the Registered Agent that represents another Corporation in Wyoming. You'll find this information in the state's Commercial Registered Agents Roster.

If you can’t find the Registered Agent information there, you can request it from the Secretary of State.

What Happens If You Don’t Have a Registered Agent?

If you don’t assign or provide a Registered Agent's details to the Secretary of State, you may be subject to certain ramifications, including but not limited to:

  • Losing your status as a Corporation in the state. A Registered Agent is evidence to the state that your business exists. Without it, you could lose your business entity protections and your Corporation may be dissolved.
  • Getting sued or served and not knowing about it. You could lose to a default judgment in your absence if your Corporation is sued and you don’t respond.
  • Falling out of good standing with the Wyoming SOS. The state may revoke your right to do business if you don’t respond to certain correspondence (such as a request for your annual report).

Acting as Your Own Registered Agent

You can be the Registered Agent for your Wyoming corporation if you have a business office in the state. There can be some drawbacks to this approach:

  • The Registered Agent must have a physical street address in Wyoming. If you’re forming a Corporation outside the state, you’ll need to use an in-state Registered Agent.
  • Someone must always be available during business hours at the Wyoming address to sign for important documents.
  • The Registered Agent’s name and address are part of the public record and available through the Wyoming SOS website. If you prefer to keep these personal details private, you should use a Registered Agent service.
  • If you change your business address or move out of state, you need to file additional documentation with the Secretary of State for the new address. This won't be necessary if you use a Registered Agent service, making a move or address change much simpler.
