If your LLC has being administratively dissolved due to it not filing an annual report, or if has been administratively dissolved for failure to maintain a Wyoming Registered Agent, you can reinstate your limited liability company and bring it back to good standing with the state. It is not very expensive, compared to most states, and it is fairly easy.
The information below is provided to help you understand the process and to take action to reinstate your LLC.
What is your LLC status?
You can reinstate if your LLC if its status is either “Delinquant” or “Inactive - Adminstratively Dissolved”. If its status is any other, you cannot reinstate through the means described below.

How far back?
Did you know that you can reinstate even if your dissolution occurred many years ago? Further, you don’t have to pay additional annual fees, only the fees outlined below.
What is cost?
The cost to reinstate, regardless of how long your LLC was administratively dissolved is fixed.
$250 – If your LLC was administratively dissolved for failure to maintain a registered agent.
$50 – If your LLC was administratively dissolved for failure to file its annual report and pay the annual license tax.
PLUS $50 – Annual report fee plus any annual license tax (based on your assets in Wyoming)
You only pay one annual report fee even if your LLC has been administratively dissolved for many years.
You must file both a reinstatement form AND annual report form
Annual License Tax is assessed on assets your LLC has that are located in Wyoming. If none of your LLC's assets are located in Wyoming, or if your Wyoming assets equal less than $250,000, then your annual fee is only the base fee of $50.
