What is an operating agreement and why do I need one?

An operating agreement is a document that protects the owner’s personal assets from the actions of the LLC, clearly outlines which actions are acceptable for the business, and creates a succession plan should the owner exit the business.

The ZenBusiness operating agreement template follows a standard format to ensure your interests are protected and your company is properly supported as it grows. You have full control to fill in your operating agreement and keep it up to date over time.
