LLC Operating Agreement

An Operating Agreement is the document that states the rights and obligations of the members as well as the distribution of income of the Limited Liability Company (LLC).

An operating agreement is not required as a prerequisite in forming the Limited Liability Company, but it is required to be kept at your place of business for maintaining compliance with the company’s corporate formalities.

All members must sign the operating agreement in order for the operating agreement to be effective and valid.

Corporate Minutes & Bylaws

The Bylaws of a Corporation are the set of rules governing how the affairs of a corporation will be conducted. This critical document does not get filed with any state offices but will frequently follow state statues as a written record of how your company will operate in compliance with state laws.

A typical corporate bylaws will include such things as:

  • The number of directors that will sit on the board
    Range and power of the directors
  • Date, time and location for annual meetings of the board
  • How the directors are elected or removed
  • How corporate officers are appointed
  • Officers duties and powers
  • Date time and location of annual shareholders meetings
  • Voting rules for both directors and shareholders
  • The bylaws are formally adopted for the company by the incorporation.

 

Minutes of Meetings are kept whenever a corporate meeting is held. It is a corporate formality that is required to uphold your corporate entity. Every action or decision for the company is recorded in the Minutes and typically included are things such as:

  • Type of meeting and logistics – time and place
    Called by notice or waived
  • Attendance and person keeping the minutes and who chaired
  • All actions taken, such as purchases, elections etc.
    Signature of recorder and date
  • Keeping minutes, even for a one-owner company can help you stand up in court and protect your limited liability shield if needed.
