Delaware is best for big business. The Chancery Court is best for those businesses that are publicly traded.
Delaware offers the series LLC when it’s better to have an LLC within an LLC. Most attorneys don’t know how to work with it. Those who do typically charge much more than $500 per hour.
Delaware copied from the Wyoming LLC Act.
Delaware sells more LLC’s because of a stronger marketing engine and more incorporators. Delaware is best for large companies where the stock is traded on an exchange.
Wyoming is for small business. Small and privately controlled companies are best served by a Wyoming LLC.
Wyoming LLC filing fees, and lack of a franchise tax, allow for several LLC’s to be formed and operated when needed. Low cost, manageability, flexibility, and the focus on small business make it the top choice. Easy to understand.
WYOMING invented the American LLC in 1977, as it was modeled after the 1892 German company law known as Gesellschaft mit beschrnkter Haftung (GmbH). Nevada and Delaware copied Wyoming’s LLC and profited from it most through better marketing.
Wyoming only has almost 600,000 in their population and with a handful of incorporators. The state is low key and the residents have a great respect for property rights and asset protection. Again, their focus is on the small business.
Delaware filing fee for the LLC is $89.
File an amendment $200
