For the state of Pennsylvania, we offer a Single and Multi-Member LLC Operating Agreements which are designed to protect the member(s) of an entity from damaging liability and are made to put all the members of an LLC into a contract that states ownership percentages and the members roles in the entity. However, there are other important benefits of the LLC Operating Agreement. Both the single and multi-member operating agreements allow for the creation of bylaws in a company, document the daily routine of the entity, and record the manager(s) and employees roles in the company. We highly recommend that an operating agreement be completed after an entity is created and filed with the Pennsylvania Secretary of State to ensure the company is organized and efficient. Below we give you the step-by-step process for filing your company with the secretary of state, which is the first step an aspiring entrepreneur should take.
