An LLC operating agreement is a key document for a limited liability company (LLC) as it outlines the terms of ownership, company structure and duties of the members of the LLC. This template is for a manager-managed LLC i.e. the owners appoint a manager or managers to handle day-to-day business decisions

An LLC is not mandatory by law in many states. However, it is important to have an LLC agreement because:

  • it defines the roles and responsibilities of the members to avoid future misunderstandings;
  • protect the members from being personally liable.; and
  • having an operating agreement gives you the power to set the rules for your LLC and have more control over your business. In absence of an LLC operating agreement, the default state rules may apply to your company.

This template includes the essential provisions of an LLC operating agreement i.e.:

  • Formation
  • Rights and Duties of the Managers
  • Capital Contribution
  • Distribution
  • Additional Member
  • Dissolution
