Florida LLC Operating Agreement


The Florida LLC Operating Agreement is the official governance document for a Fla limited liability company.  This agreement should always be in writing and signed by all members to ensure there are no misunderstandings or later disputes about LLC ownership, rights, obligations and rules.


Benefits of a Florida LLC Operating Agreement


The most important benefit of this document is that it addresses the many ownership and operational details for a Florida LLC business.  This results in reducing the chances of any later disputes or misunderstandings between members and managers. 


Another benefit is that it gives the limited liability company its own personality and set of governing rules and this is very important to ward off any challenges claiming that the members be personally liable for business debts, obligations and lawsuits.


A final benefit is the practice of sound governance and maintenance practices.  By having a simple set of rules and following them as you operated your LLC business, you are creating a trail of sound business practices which in turn better ensure you remain in good standing and address the important business planning requirements of your business.


Limitations of Operating Agreement Provisions


Generally, the Florida laws allow for the ability to customize the substantive provisions of the Florida LLC Operating Agreement to the needs of a particular business. However, there are some topics that cannot be altered in the written document.


Examples of those topics which cannot be altered or removed include:


  • - Unreasonably restricting a members rights to LLC information and access to records

  • - Completely Eliminating the Duty of Loyalty Imposed upon Members

  • - Varying the wind up requirements of the Florida LLC's business upon dissolution
