Attributes of A Wyoming LLC

Wyoming legislation passed the first LLC state statute in 1977. Making Wyoming the first state to develop and implement the idea of an LLC. This new Wyoming LLC, limited liability company, resulted from state legislatures combining nontax advantages of a corporation with the tax status of a partnership. Popularity of the idea of a Wyoming LLC has grown significantly since then. An LLC is a preferred business form for companies with few owners, estate planning, and corporation subsidiaries.

Tax Treatment of WY LLCs

Wyoming LLCs can choose to be federally taxed similar to a partnership (as an individual) or as corporation. Generally, members of a WY LLC elect for the company to be taxed as a partnership for federal taxes. This results in the WY LLC in paying no federal income taxes and each member reporting income or losses on their personal federal income tax returns. This can be a benefit in certain situations and create a tax shelter for some. Some wealthy investors use WY LLCs to reduce their income by deducting their LLC losses on their federal tax returns as their initial or capital contributions to the LLC are at risk. Other investors can use a WY LLC sometimes use their LLC losses to offset other types of investments.

Rights and Liabilities of Members

Limited Liability

A Wyoming LLC member's liability is usually limited to their contributions to the LLC. A member has no personal liability related to LLC contracts unless the contracts are signed in a personal capacity. However, a member is liable for any torts or crimes they commit while managing the LLC.

Management Rights

A Wyoming LLC can either be member-managed or manager-managed.

By default a Wyoming LLC is considered to be "member-managed". Which means that each member of a member managed LLC can act as an agent for the company. If a member-managed LLC limited the authority of one of its members to conduct ordinary operations then that manager can still maintain apparent authority to conduct LLC business and enter into contracts with others who did not know the member's decision making authority was restricted. An operating agreement can help clearly establish the roles of each member and define the powers to correspond to their capital contributions.

A WY LLC operating agreement can changed the default from "member-managed" to "manager-managed". A manager of an LLC can be elected or removed by a vote of LLC members. The manager's authority to conduct ordinary business is similar to that of a member-managed LLC. A manager or manager's share the rights to act as an agent on behalf of the LLC. Similar to a member-managed LLC, a manager who has no authority to make decisions will still have an apparent authority if a third party did not know the manager's decision making authority was restricted.

Typically, most LLC daily operations can be conducted by a single manager or member or by a majority vote of managers or members. There are unique situations that require a unanimous consent between al members, such ass amendment of an operating agreement, adding new members, member's interest, and sale of the LLC's assets.

A Wyoming LLC can be liable for members and managers acting within their authority and for any torts or crimes any of the managing members or managers may have committed. Generally, an LLC is not liable for wrongful acts committed by members not designated as managers in a manager-managed LLC.

Duties

Members and managers of a Wyoming LLC have a fiduciary duty to the LLC and its members. Acting in a fiduciary way means that a member or manager would act with care in a way that is reasonably in the best interest  of the LLC. This may include not competing with the LLC. Non-managing members owe no fiduciary duty to the LLC. Although it would make sense that a non-managing member would owe a duty of good faith and dealing to act honestly and respectfully. An operating agreement can help expand, restrict, or eliminate any fiduciary duties.

Member Distributions

A distribution is another way of describing profits given to a member. This is probably one of the most important rights a member of a WY LLC can have. By default members share profits and other distributions equally. The operating agreement will usually mention how much and when members will receive distributions. Determination of each member's distribution can be easy or complex. Distributions can be calculated in proportion to their capital contributions or other factors such as hours worked, client revenue generated by a specific member, and others.

Ownership Interest

Ownership interest of an LLC is considered to be personal property of the member. A member of an Wyoming LLC has limited ability to freely to sell or transfer their interest. A member may transfer only their "transferable interest" to another person. An operating agreement can provide that a transferee of transferable interest become an LLC member. A personal creditor of a single member can obtain a charging order that attaches to a member's transferable interest for the life of the charging order. However, the creditor does no own the transferable interest and is more of a lein against it. It is possible for a creditor to acquire the transferable interest, but the credit would have to foreclose against the transferable interest and then purchase it at a later foreclosure sale.

Attributes of A Wyoming INC (Corporation)

Modern corporation laws within the last 200 years has helped facilitate and develop permitted business by allowing to raise capital in a capacity that other forms do not. This capital raising is typically seen when investors purchase shares of a corporation and become owners without becoming exposed to the unlimited liability that a manager may have. This limited liability and no managerial responsibilities has more appeal to investors than a partnership or other business form.

Tax Treatment of WY INCs

Wyoming INCs are taxed on income completely separate from its owners, also known as shareholders. Generally, a WY corporation will pay federal income taxes on the profits generated. Shareholders, known as owners, do not pay federal income tax on the profits of the Wyoming corporation they own. Instead, income is only considered personal income when the WY corporation makes a distribution to them. For example, a shareholder receives a dividend from the corporation. This dividend is then considered personal income. A Wyoming corporation does create the possible situation of double-taxation. Which is when the corporation pays federal income taxes and then the corporation distributes after tax dividends and the shareholders then pay a personal income tax on the dividend.

Rights and Liabilities of Shareholders

Shareholder and Owner Liability

Wyoming corporation shareholders are the owners of the corporation. The shareholders assume few responsibilities and have few liabilities from the corporations actions. There are a couple of instances when a shareholder may be effected by adverse effects of liability such as when a shareholder pays too little consideration for shares, when a Wyoming corporation is defectively formed, and in instances when the corporate veil is pierced.  

One of the main attributes of a Wyoming corporation is the limited liability of its shareholders. Which means in ordinary circumstances a shareholder is not liable for corporate obligations such as corporate debts owed or wages owed to corporate employees.


Shareholder Rights

A Wyoming corporation shareholder has many ownership rights. Some of the rights are well known and others may need to be reviewed more in depth for someone new to the idea.

Wyoming INC shareholders have the right to inspect a corporations books and records. A shareholder may be able to have a better idea on how to vote for a director after examining corporate financial records. Shareholders also have the right to inspect older records if made in good faith and have a proper purpose. Shareholders have the right to receive important information related to their voting and investing decisions.

Shareholders in a Wyoming corporation also have a preemptive right. This right gives an option of a shareholder to receive new issuance of shares proportional to their current interest in the corporation. This sometimes occurs when a stock price becomes so high that the corporation does a stock split. Which increases the amount of shares to reduce the price of a single share. The opposite can also occur during a situation called a buy back. These actions ensure that a shareholder's right to vote is not diminished by the issuance of new shares and reducing their ability to vote on corporation dealings.

Duties

Shareholders of a Wyoming INC have been recognized to be seen as fiduciaries who have an ability to control the corporation in a fair and just way that benefits all of the shareholders. Issues with fiduciary duties is often seen with majority shareholders who could cause the Wyoming corporation to pay themselves a high dividend and leave out a minority shareholder. Since a corporation is primarily controlled by shareholder votes, it is important for majority shareholders to be impartial and not prefer themselves over other shareholders.

Dividends

An important objective of a Wyoming INC is to make a profit. A main reason investors purchase shares to become a shareholder is to receive some of the expected profit as an appreciation of share value or dividends. The two types of dividends; cash/property dividends and share dividends. 

Cash dividends are considered to be a distribution of the corporation. Share dividends are not considered distribution of corporation assets. Dividends are generally paid in cash. However, they can also be payed in other assets such as gas vouchers, airline trips, or shares of another corporation. Dividends are declared by the corporation's board of directors. Once declared, a shareholder has the right to sue and force payment of the declared dividend. Dividends can be set depending on preferred shares or common shares. Types of shares are typically mentioned in the articles of incorporation. The dividend accumulation of preferred shares must be paid before shareholders of common shares can be payed. 

Transferability Of Interest

Ownership interest of an LLC is considered to be personal property of the member. A member of an Wyoming LLC has limited ability to freely to sell or transfer their interest. A member may transfer only their "transferable interest" to another person. An operating agreement can provide that a transferee of transferable interest become an LLC member. A personal creditor of a single member can obtain a charging order that attaches to a member's transferable interest for the life of the charging order. However, the creditor does no own the transferable interest and is more of a lein against it. It is possible for a creditor to acquire the transferable interest, but the credit would have to foreclose against the transferable interest and then purchase it at a later foreclosure sale.
