Maintaining anonymity with your LLC
Wyoming law provides some opportunities for anonymity when running a company. However, this anonymity is not absolute. Under Wyoming law, the registered agent of the company is compelled to obtain a list of the entity's directors, officers, limited liability company managers, managing partners, trustees or persons serving in a similar capacity. The registered agent is also obligated to obtain the name, physical address and business telephone number of a natural person who is authorized to receive communications from the registered agent. If the company comes under investigation, the registered agent will give that information directly over to the government.
What if you want to maintain anonymity from everyone, including the government, can you do that? The answer is yes. There is a legal loophole that will allow you to maintain your anonymity even in the face of government investigators and prosecutors. You can structure your company so that you maintain your anonymity no matter what.
There is a very important requirement though. You have to decide to go this route from the very start. If you have already formed your Wyoming company and are seeking to modify things to make it more confidential, it is probably too late. You have to start working on the confidentiality from the very beginning. It has to be built into the business plan.
