For the state of Oregon, we offer a step-by-step guide to filing your entity with the state of Oregon by utilizing an Articles of Organization, and two extremely useful LLC Operating Agreements (Single and Multi-Member) that are designed to protect and organize your newly created entity. The LLC Operating Agreement’s main purpose is to protect the member(s) of an entity from suffering financial loss by succumbing to liability brought down from the entity. Additionally, the operating agreement’s put the different members of an LLC into a contract that states ownership percentages and their roles in the company (for entities with more than one (1) owner, they document the daily routine of the entity, record each manager(s) and employees role(s) in the company, they allow for the creation of bylaws within the entity, and generally organize and structure your company to maintain efficiency and effectiveness. However, one of our operating agreements can only be utilized once an entity has been created and filed with the Oregon Secretary of State. Below we have created a step-by-step process to filing your new entity with an Articles of Organization.
