No.

If I hire you, how do you collect the information necessary and create articles of organization specific to my company’s needs?

We use standard forms that are accepted by the state of Wyoming, although sometimes clients wish to have additional information placed on their articles of organization. In that case, you may tell us what you’d like on the forms, and we can add anything to them at no extra cost.

I want to form an LLC in my wife’s name. Whose name do we use on the articles of organization?

That depends. If you wish to designate your wife as your organizer, use her name.

If you wish to hire Buffalo Registered Agent to be the organizer, then only our name will be listed.

Can I set up my LLC with proxy members? If so, can I designate you as my proxy?

Yes, you can set up proxy members. This would be done in your Operating Agreement.

No, we will not serve as proxy members of your LLC.

One of my business partners doesn’t live in the US. Can they still be a member of my LLC?

Yes.

If my signature isn’t on my articles of organization, how can I prove that I own my business?

Two ways. First, if you hired Buffalo Registered Agent to be your organizer, we would send you an Initial Resolution document that states that we have zero interest in your company and that full ownership is retained by you. This is an internal document and is not filed with the state.

Second, you can designate ownership however you wish in your Operating Agreement, which is also not filed with the state.

In Wyoming, you need to fill out an LLC Amendment to Articles of Organization form and send it, in duplicate, to the Secretary of State.

No, not in Wyoming.

You can, however, restate your Articles of Organization at any time, and all amendments will be consolidated into a single document.

Wyoming does not allow amendments to your registered agent and your principle business address.
