Most investors pre- fer dealing with a corporation because a corporation has a more formal structure with more over- sight. Managing an LLC An LLC can be managed by a manager or by the members, who are then referred to as "man- aging members" or "member- managers." A manager doesn't have to be a member of the LLC. As with partnerships, all members of an LLC should sign on to a comprehensive operating agreement -- analogous to a part- nership agreement -- that out- lines the members' management responsibilities, contribution amounts, allocation of expenses, distributions, management au- thority and limitations, dissocia- tion, buyout rights, dispute reso- lution, admission of new members and dissolution procedures. Re- lying on oral agreements among members or with outside parties is one of the most common mis- takes of unseasoned business owners and can result in confu- sion, misunderstandings and liti- gation. Regardless of what form a business chooses to take, all of its owners should protect their individual and mutual interests by maintaining comprehensive, organized, written records and documentation. They should also consult attorneys and accoun- tants for advice on the risks and rewards of different LLC formats. The Western New Mexico University Small Business Devel- opment Center (SBDC) offers as- sistance to entrepreneurs who are starting a business or wanting to expand an-existing business.
