A Complete Guide to Appointing a Registered Agent in Wyoming

Before your organization can legally operate in Wyoming, you must appoint a registered agent with the secretary of state. The agent accepts legal and government notices on your behalf, and having one is mandatory for all filing entities.

In this guide, you’ll learn who can act as a registered agent in Wyoming and how to appoint one. You’ll also see how Harbor Compliance fulfills the duties of an agent and helps your organization operate in accordance with Wyoming’s laws.

Duties of Wyoming Registered Agents

A registered agent receives and forwards service of process to the designated person in your organization, as well as other official communications that require your attention. According to Section 17-28-107 of the Wyoming Statutes, a registered agent is also obligated to:

  • Maintain a physical address in Wyoming—known as a registered office—to which legal notices can be delivered
  • Keep track of information regarding their represented entities, most notably:
    • “Key Individuals”—Names and addresses of officers, directors, and other members of a similar capacity
    • “Communications Contact”—Name, address, and phone number of the person authorized to receive official notices from the agent

Regardless of these additional responsibilities, your agent’s primary duty is to ensure all important notices reach you timely. Failing to do so can result in you being unaware of legal action taken against your organization, so you might not show up in court when needed. In this case, the court would most likely resort to default judgment and rule in the plaintiff’s favor.

Wyoming Registered Agent Requirements

Wyoming Statutes (Section 17-28-101) allow the following to act as registered agents:

  1. An individual of legal age (18 and over)
  2. A domestic organization other than yours
  3. A foreign organization authorized to transact in Wyoming

You have various options if you want to appoint an individual agent—a friend, family member, employee, yourself, etc. Still, many organization leaders turn to other organizations, mainly because they’re considered more reliable. An organization can have multiple people authorized to receive your notices, so there’s a much lower chance of missed correspondence than with an individual.

Like several other states, Wyoming distinguishes between commercial and noncommercial registered agents, with the main difference being the number of represented entities. As per Section 17-28-105 of the Wyoming Statutes, any agent representing more than 10 entities is required to register as a commercial agent and may not:

  • Have a history of felony convictions
  • Approach the registered agent role in a way that shows intent to defraud the public

If the agent is an organization, these requirements extend to its key individuals. The organization also can’t employ any key individuals or authorized persons whose rights to serve as a registered agent have been revoked by the secretary of state or another state’s equivalent official.

How To Appoint/Change a Registered Agent in Wyoming

If you’re registering a new organization in Wyoming, you’ll appoint an agent in your formation filings, which depend on your business structure:

Business Structure Formation Filings
Profit Corporation Articles of Incorporation
Nonprofit Corporation Articles of Incorporation
LLC Articles of Organization

Organizations expanding from another jurisdiction must name an agent in their foreign qualification filings in order to obtain a certificate of authority.

Whether you’re forming or foreign qualifying your organization, the corresponding filings will contain a section where you need to enter the agent’s name and address. The documents will also include the Consent to Appointment by Registered Agent form, which confirms the agent has agreed to provide the aforementioned services.

If you already have an agent but want to work with a different one, you need to submit the Appointment of New Registered Agent and Office form to the secretary of state.

Failing to keep the agent’s information current might result in administrative dissolution, which is where your rights to operate in Wyoming are revoked. To avoid such issues, always notify the secretary of state in case of any updates. The only exception is if your commercial agent changes their information, as they can submit the related updates independently.

Individual Registered Agents in Wyoming vs. Harbor Compliance

There are several reasons you should partner with Harbor Compliance over a typical individual agent:

  • Complete privacy—When you appoint us, our information enters the public record instead of yours (which would happen if you appointed yourself).
  • Constant availability—Our Sheridan office is open at all times during regular business hours, whereas an individual may be absent for various reasons (travel, illness, emergencies, etc.).
  • Nationwide presence—If your organization operates beyond Wyoming, you’d need a separate agent in each state (and you can’t appoint yourself in multiple states at once). With offices around the U.S., we give you complete freedom and flexibility to manage notices from several jurisdictions in one place.
  • Industry-standard security—From strong encryption to confidentiality agreements signed by all our team members, Harbor Compliance offers numerous security measures unavailable to an average individual agent.
  • Discretion—With Harbor Compliance, there’s no risk of receiving service of process in front of your team or clients—all notices are delivered discreetly to your secure Client Portal.
