When should you reinstate Wyoming Corporation? A Wyoming Corporation will require reinstatement only if it has been administratively dissolved by the secretary of state. A business corporation can be administratively dissolved on the grounds that it has failed to submit its annual reports or has not paid their annual license taxes.

Why do I reinstate my company?

Once your company is administratively dissolved, you have to reinstate Wyoming Corporation but it is important to know why or what are the reasons that can lead to such a situation. According to WY Stat § 17-16-1420 (2014), the grounds for administrative dissolution are:

  • If a business corporation is unable to submit its annual report also known as “Annual Report License Tax” pursuant to W.S. 17-16-1630 with the office of the secretary of state when it is due.
  • If a business corporation does not maintain a registered agent or a registered office in this state pursuant to 2015 Wyoming Code, WY Stat § 17-16-501 (1997 through Reg Sess)
  • If a business corporation fails to notify the secretary of state within a period of 30 days that their registered agent or registered office has changed or if their registered agent has resigned.
  • If the business has provided fraudulent or incorrect information to the secretary of state during business registration
  • The corporation has failed to pay any penalties imposed under W.S. 17-28-109 or provide records to their registered agent pursuant to W.S. 17-28-107
