Wyoming Corporation v. Nevada Corporation

Why Incorporate in Wyoming

Wyoming state fees are less than most other states. Wyoming has no business license fees or officer filing fees.  This means we can deliver a quality company package for much less than you would pay in Nevada or Delaware. And, your Wyoming state renewal fee is, in most cases, $50, that is 84% less than what you will pay in Nevada.   Wyoming is one of the most cost effective states to incorporate in and also to maintain in the following years.  (Click here for pricing.)

And, the nice thing about Wyoming is that are many other reasons to incorporate here.

Asset Protection

A Wyoming corporation or LLC offers its officers and directors the highest degree of protection from lawsuits filed by disgruntled creditors or overzealous plaintiff attorneys. Doing business as a Wyoming Corporation or LLC can give you asset protection and business privacy.

The first LLC statutes in the United States were instituted in Wyoming in 1977 and changed in 2010 to stay current with the times. Since Wyoming has had limited liability companies available longer than any other state and has the strongest laws protecting members and managers of an LLC, we feel it is the state of choice for establishing LLC’s.


Wyoming does not require the manager nor the members of an LLC to be listed on a public database.   Nevada requires a tax ID number of the company and personal guarantee by you on the state’s business license.


You can operate your Corporation and live anywhere in the world and you do not have to be a US citizen to incorporate in Wyoming. But, in order to give substance to your operation, you should know about our Office Service Contract and learn how use of this inexpensive option will give “presence” to your remote corporate operations. And, if you are not a US Citizen, we have a section for you to read here.

No State Taxes

There are no State taxes in Wyoming on corporations. If you choose to incorporate in Wyoming, your company may not pay State taxes at all. Stop for a minute and think what you paid last year in your States income tax. If you are comparing Nevada and Wyoming, keep in mind that the Nevada had a bill voted on in November of 2014 installing a corporate gross receipts tax of 2% (no deductions allowed).  That would have meant that some companies in Nevada would have paid more in Nevada state taxes than they would in California!  In fact some Nevada companies would have been paying one of the highest state taxes in the nation!  Don’t gamble on Nevada not installing a corporate tax.

According to the new 2015 edition of the Tax Foundation’s State Business Tax Climate Index, “Wyoming has the most business-friendly tax system of any state,” for the fifth year in a row.  And it has a budget surplus!
