Nevada Resident Agent & Nominee Officer Service, Nevada Secretary Of StateNevada corporations and Nevada LLC's are a good way to protect assets, run a business and stay compliant.  Wyoming corporations and LLC's offer the same advantages as Nevada.  The difference?  Wyoming state filing fees are less than in Nevada.

Incorporating in Wyoming or Montana offers more advantages than in Nevada...

1. Authorized shares may be unlimited with no par value.  In Nevada, the annual filing fees are determined by the number of shares authorized.  Too many shares may mean thousands in filing fees every year with Nevada.  In Wyoming, it's $50 every year and it doesn't matter how many shares are authorized.  In Nevada, you'll pay a minimum $125 annual fee and $200 state business license.

2.  Nevada and Wyoming both have no income taxes for humans and corporations.  This is a plus when you're really doing business out of either state or if you live there.  Nevada's 0% tax is subject to review because the whole state is in the red.  In contrast, Wyoming's financing are in the black.  They have a surplus, even with a 0% state income tax.  Why?  A sales tax is enough for them.

3.  Operating expenses are lower in Wyoming.  This means that if you're obtaining a virtual office or mail forwarding, it will cost you less.  Your provider will pay less in overhead and this means less costs for you.

4.  Anything you can do with a Nevada company you're able to do with a Wyoming company.

5.  Lower filing fees in Wyoming translate into lower rates for shelf corporations and shelf llc's.  In fact, the least expensive shelf LLC may be found in Wyoming and New Mexico.  This is because New Mexico has no annual state fee for their LLC's.  You may obtain a New Mexico LLC for as little as $1000 and pay no annual state fees.
