For years now, we’ve provided do-it-yourself real estate investors and other small businesses with instantly downloadable limited liability company formation kits. And for years, we sold the kits for a modest price to business owners and investors.
We’re taking a different approach now, however, given the distress that many small business owners find themselves suffering. We’re now giving away the kits for free.
Available for all fifty states, these free llc kits provide step-by-step instructions, sample forms and boilerplate operating agreements. In short, the kits make it possible for you to set up an LLC on your own in just a few minutes.
Contents in a Free LLC Kit
Specifically, each state’s kit:
- Explains the pros and cons, benefits and costs of setting up an LLC in that particular state
- Provides step-by-step instructions for forming an LLC for rental investment purposes, including of course filing the articles of formation with the appropriate state office
- Reviews procedure for obtaining a federal employer identification number, or EIN
- Describes any additional actions required to activate and begin using an LLC including drafting and signing the LLC operating agreement
Bonus: Two LLC Operating Agreements
You also get sample LLC operating agreements: one for a single-member LLC and one for a multiple-member LLC. (The owners of an LLC are called “members.”) Written by Stanford Law School graduate Carl Baranowski, these short, simple LLC operating agreements let you easily create your own governing documents on a budget. Or they become a “first draft” LLC operating agreement you can use to show an attorney what you want and need.
