When an LLC is formally established after filing the articles of organization with a state's secretary of state, it's free to pass resolutions. Unlike corporations, LLCs are not required by law to use resolutions, nor are there any clear guidelines for doing it.

There are still benefits to passing resolutions within an LLC. For a start, LLC members and managers are bound by what's decided in the resolutions. It's particularly useful for multi-member LLCs to pass resolutions and create an operating agreement for the company.

What Is an LLC Resolution?

One essential thing to keep in mind is that any LLC member has the right to propose a resolution. Whether the resolution will pass depends on most members voting in favor with the exact percentage determined by the rules governing the LLC. LLC resolutions are used for many purposes.

Some of the most common resolutions requiring voting have to do with opening a bank account or applying for a loan. An LLC resolution is also crucial when it's time to vote for a new LLC member or delegate LLC authority. Other uses may include buying real estate, approving profit distributions, and signing significant contracts.

Other Names for LLC Resolution

Depending on your state, an LLC Resolution may also be known as:

  • Limited Liability Resolution

Who Needs an LLC Resolution

LLCs are not required to pass resolutions, but some of them do so anyway. Sometimes banks and lenders may ask to see a relevant LLC resolution. In particular, this may be because they want to make sure who has the authority to sign documents for the LLC. Or if they're going to make sure that the company's records are in order.

LLC Resolution Signing Requirements

After an LLC resolution has been passed, all the members who voted need to sign the document. The person designated to write and store the resolution is also required to sign it. However, there's no need to involve a notary public for the document to be valid, as it's an internal document rarely used outside the LLC.

What to Do with Your LLC Resolution

After the LLC resolution has been signed and adopted by the company, it should be kept with the rest of the company's written records. A hard copy is always good to have available too.

The designated person responsible for the resolution can distribute it digitally to the members and managers for record-keeping purposes.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re a small business owner, you’ll likely be attracted to the idea of an LLC. There are fewer legal requirements to establish an LLC as compared to a corporation. There’s also more flexibility in regard to federal taxes. The owner of an LLC can either be taxed as a sole proprietor or as a partnership. Also, there are more options for how the profits are distributed. In general, an LLC requires less paperwork than corporations.

Also known as the certificate of organization, this is the application sent to a state’s Secretary of State to start an LLC. The document usually contains several official statements pertaining to the organization.

Even though LLC Resolutions are more common with multi-member LLCs, there’s nothing to stop a single-member LLC from using these. A third party may even request to see a resolution.
If you're the sole member of an LLC, it may seem unnecessary but having the proper documentation can be important for any company.

When an LLC has an even number of members, the voting process can be complicated in the event of a management deadlock. If the votes are tied, the management deadlock must be resolved according to the deadlock provisions previously established. Sometimes that means using an external tie-breaker, and other times one member may agree to sell provisions to another. If the members can’t resolve the deadlock, the next step could be arbitration or litigation.

If you're a member, you should have a copy of the LLC’s operating agreement. This is an important document that clearly states the internal rules and regulations governing the company's management. By virtue of the operating agreement, members and managers can minimize disagreements in the LLC.
