IncSmart Wyoming (Small Business and Startups) - Most states set a limit on the number of shares that are authorized to issue. In Wyoming you may issue as many shares as you wish without any additional costs or fees by simply making the proper entries in your Articles of Incorporation. Unlimited shares may be of importance to you if you ever want to take your company public.
You can issue stock to each shareholder. Although not legally required in most states, small corporations usually issue paper stock certificates from Legal Kits. Then enter each shareholder's name and contact information in the corporation’s stock transfer ledger also found in the Legal Kit. The federal government and all states exempt most small corporations from laws on issuing stocks. Federal law exempts "private offerings": a non-advertised sale to a limited number of people (generally 35 or fewer); most states have enacted their own versions of this SEC exemption.
