Iowa LLC Operating Agreement Templates (2)

An Iowa limited liability company operating agreement should be issued to and signed by each member forming this company. While Iowa has no statutes obligating an LLC to form an operating agreement, this document would be treated like a contract binding each member to its content. This enables the structure of the LLC, along with its internal environment and status, to be set in writing for future reference and proof whenever needed.

Is it Required in Iowa?

No. An operating agreement is not a legally required contract for Iowa LLCs to be organized or operate in this state, but a signed and notarized operating agreement is widely suggested.
