incorporates, the formation must be documented by filing a record with

maintained by the Secretary of State as matters of public record.
It should be noted that not all businesses located in the State of
Wyoming have incorporated in Wyoming. Some businesses do not incorporate
or form a business entity requiring a filing with the Secretary of
State. Additionally, not all businesses incorporated in the state in
which they are situated. Instead, some businesses elect to incorporate
in a state other than their home state in order to take advantage of the
laws of that state. The Wyoming Secretary of State will have records for
businesses that have incorporated in the State of Wyoming. The Wyoming
Secretary of State might also have records of businesses incorporated in
a different state, if that business has had cause to file registration
in the State of Wyoming.
