Arizona LLC Operating Agreement
The Arizona LLC Operating Agreement is the core document that is referred to when issues concerning an Arizona limited liability company (“LLC”) need to be resolved.
The LLC Operating Agreement is the most important document for your Arizona LLC.
In the case of a single member LLC, without the formality of an LLC Operating Agreement, the LLC can closely resemble a sole proprietorship, which does not limit your personal liability for business debts of the LLC.
With respect to a multi-member LLC, the LLC Operating Agreement reflects the agreement among the members with respect to the affairs and management of the LLC and governs the relationship amongst the members of the LLC. By having an LLC Operating Agreement, the members will be provided with a clear set of rules that all members have agreed upon greatly reducing the likelihood of disagreement between them in the future. A LLC Operating Agreement will also greatly reduce financial and management misunderstandings, and make sure your business is governed by your own rules -- not default rules created by the state of Arizona.
