The purpose of the LLC Operating Agreement document is to establish ownership and management of a company or LLC in Delaware, and to provide guidelines for daily operations and officer responsibilities. It is recommended that each member keep an original copy of the agreement as it is not filed with any government office. To complete the agreement, follow the step-by-step instructions below:
Fill in the name of your LLC, ensuring that it includes the "LLC" or "L.L.C." suffix as required by law in most states. The name should be unique and not infringing on any existing company's name. This step is important as it identifies the company and is used for legal documents, contracts, and filings.
Fill in the date on which the agreement is entered into, usually written in the format: Month Day, Year (e.g., March 24, 2023). This establishes the official commencement of the LLC and ensures all parties are informed about the effective date.
Check the appropriate box to indicate whether your LLC is a single-member or multi-member LLC. For a single-member LLC, provide the sole owner's name and mailing address. For a multi-member LLC, list each member's name, ownership percentage, and mailing address. This information is required for legal and regulatory compliance, and to ensure the smooth operation of the company.
Provide the LLC's name and its principal place of business, including the street address, city, state, and zip code. This address will be the primary location where the company conducts its business activities. This is crucial as it identifies the specific company to which the agreement applies and is used for legal documents, contracts, and fillings.
Fill in the date on which your LLC was formed by filing the Articles of Organization with the Secretary of State in the state of formation. This date should match the date on the official filing documents. This step is important for legal and regulatory compliance.
For a multi-member LLC, fill in each member's capital account information, Members' Percentage Interests, and the allocation of net profits, net losses, and cash receipts. By filling in each empty field accurately, you ensure that the operating agreement reflects the intentions of the LLC's members and provides a solid foundation for the company's operations and decision-making processes. This detailed information helps avoid potential disputes and misunderstandings among members and ensures compliance with legal requirements.
Fill in the effective date of the operating agreement and the name of the company if the company is a multi-member LLC. This step is important as it identifies the company and establishes when the Agreement comes into effect.
Lastly, fill in the signature, date, and printed name for each member of the LLC. These signatures confirm the members' agreement to the terms and conditions outlined in the operating agreement, making it legally binding and enforceable.
