Wyoming Corporations are not private. Officer and director information will be required and available to the public eventually. You can form a Wyoming Corporation without listing officers and directors, but when you file your annual report, you will have to disclose them. We can form your Wyoming Corporation for you (Wyoming corporations are our specialty), but be aware that when we sign as your incorporator it will keep your information off-line for one year. If you’re really into privacy, please look at a Wyoming LLC. It’s totally private if you hire a registered agent that does it the right way for you.
If by chance you still want us to incorporate in Wyoming for you, you can place an order for a Wyoming Corporation for $150 total.
We’ll do the filing for you. Our office handles Wyoming corporations every day, and we know exactly how Wyoming corp formation works.

Next Steps After Wyoming Incorporation
You’ve incorporated in Wyoming—now what? There are a few essential steps you’ll need to take ensure your corporation stays compliant at the state and federal level and runs smoothly:
Prepare Wyoming corporate bylaws. State law requires all Wyoming corporations to have corporate bylaws. However, you don’t have to file your corporate bylaws with the state (just make sure you keep a copy on hand). Corporate bylaws contain the rules and regulations your corporation must follow to operate well.
For example, bylaws explain:
- How to appoint corporate officers
- When and where to hold important meetings
- Record- and bookkeeping procedures
- How to handle disputes
Your corporate bylaws can be complicated, and they’re legal-binding, so that’s why our Wyoming incorporation package includes access to sample corporate bylaws drafted by a lawyer.
Apply for an Employer Identification Number (EIN). Your EIN (or FEIN) is available through the IRS online EIN application portal. Corporations are required to apply for this tax ID number, which they use on federal tax filings. Check out our detailed walkthrough on How to Get an IRS EIN Number for Free in Wyoming.
Open a Business Bank Account. You’ll need a dedicated bank account for your new corporation. For limited liability protection, it’s important to ensure your personal assets and business assets remain separate. Learn more about How to Open a Wyoming Bank Account for an LLC or Corporation.
File your Beneficial Ownership Information report. As of January 1, 2024, most corporations are required to file Beneficial Ownership Information (BOI) report with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) in an effort to combat financial crime. Corporations formed after the effective date in 2024 have 90 days to file. Starting in 2025, BOI report filing must be completed within 30 days of company formation. Meanwhile, all existing corporations (formed before 2024) have until January 1, 2025 to file.
Unless your corporation is exempt (for example, if you have 20+ employees and make over $5 million a year), you must provide FinCEN with information about your:
- Reporting company: your corporation
- Beneficial owner: anyone with substantial control over company operations, like a corporate officer, or anyone who owns at least 25% of the corporation
- Company applicant: the individual(s) responsible for your formation filing
Your BOI report is free to file, and the information you provide does not go on the public record.
BOI reports must include the following information:
For your reporting company:
- Legal company name
- All DBA or trade names
- The jurisdiction where your corp was formed
- Your tax ID (EIN or TIN)
For your beneficial owner(s) and company applicant(s):
- Full legal name
- Residential address
- Birth date
- Copy of photo ID (for example, driver’s license or passport)
If you’re looking to lighten your filing load, we offer BOI report filing for only $9.
