Aged shelf corporations are used for convenience, to assume a business history and to develop a perceived stability of the business operation. Therefore, as long as the corporation is clean of liabilities, it really doesn’t matter where the aged shelf corporation was initially filed. It can always be continued in a state like Wyoming or domiciled in another state. In terms of the purpose of the corporation, it matters. Corporations are best served in Delaware when they are to go public with an offering. Nevada and Wyoming are best for privacy, asset protection, confidentiality and flexibility in management.
Montana and New Mexico companies are best for building business credit.
Wyoming is unique; in that, the corporation can be domiciled in Wyoming as if it was there the entire time. It’s a continuance of the corporate presence. This means a corporation in the Bahamas, New York, or anywhere else, is continued in Wyoming as if it has always existed there.
