During the 2008 Budget Session of the Wyoming State Legislature, legislation was passed that provided regulation of the registered agent industry. This legislation created the Registered Offices and Agents Act, effective January 1, 2009.
Once a registered agent hits that magic threshold of representing 10 or more entities, the registered agent must register with the Compliance Division as a Commercial Registered Agent (CRA) by submitting a Commercial Registered Agent Registration Form.
A Commercial Registered Agent's registration is valid until December 31st of each year and must be filed annually. If the registration is allowed to expire, every entity that a Commercial Registered Agent represents will no longer have a registered agent and will be subject to administrative dissolution by our office.
This legislation also gives the Secretary of State's Office enforcement authority to investigate violations of the Registered Offices and Agents Act and to file administrative actions and refer criminal matters to local, state or federal authorities.
Commercial Registered Agents who have requested that their name be published on a public list are found on the CRA Roster. Publication on this list is not an endorsement nor recommendation by the Secretary of State.
