A Registered Agent in Wyoming is an individual or a Wyoming-based firm that receives legal paperwork for your LLC should it get involved in a lawsuit. This paperwork, more accurately referred to as Service of Process, can encompass documents such as complaints, summons, and subpoenas.
In many cases, they also file the incorporation documents on behalf of LLC founders, file the annual report, and so on.

Basically, the legal system needs to know that there is a reliable address in Wyoming where vital documents may be dropped off during regular business hours. This is so they can track where these papers wind up, similar to how you get a receipt when you send anything by certified mail.
A Registered Agent is often the individual who receives company and tax notices, yearly report reminders, and other sorts of documentation. However, most messages from the Wyoming Secretary of State are now sent by email.
Your Wyoming registered agent must have a street address there. Not a PO Box, but a real street address.
Who Can Be Your Registered Agent in Wyoming?
If you have a street address in Wyoming, you can serve as your own registered agent. If you have a friend or a family member with a street address there, they can serve as one.
If you read this from another part of the world, you have no Wyoming street address, therefore you must use a commercial registered agent service.
