Hi! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm happy to assist you with your question.
You don't use an address in Illinois whatsoever?
Do you have enough information?
Not for this business
The corporation will own the developer agreement to create software
The corporation will publish the software
Registering a foreign corporation in Illinois is for doing business in Illinois.
The corporation will receive the proceeds from the sale of the software
Given the facts you stated - no, you don't need to register your Wyoming LLC in Illinois.
Okay, so living in Illinois and participating online with the corporation is not considered doing business in Illinois
When a foreign corporation transacts business in Illinois, it must qualify to do business by procuring an Authority to Transact Business in Illinois from the Secretary of State's
Department of Business Services (§13.05)
You could transact your business through Wyoming.
So I would live in Illinois and transact business in Wyoming
The fact that you live there doesn't mean you do business there.
One more aspect to this question
I will have outside contractors around the world actually that will 'work' and send their portions to the corporation.
All through the internet - correct?
That would still hold true.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX for a bit, but I believe you answered my question.
