Registering an LLC in a state where you don`t live is a different process than forming an LLC in your home state. The registration process can vary from state to state and can be called something else, such as a “foreign qualification” or a “certificate of authority.” Cancellable simply means that the minor can evade one of the obligations of the contract without effect, while the other non-minor party does not have this option. Note that legal requirements for minors performing a contract can make the task very difficult for the other non-minor party. As mentioned above, if you wanted to give a minor an interest in real estate, you could do it. The deed states that the interest in real estate for the minor was held by a custodian under FUTMA. In addition, most of us do not individually own investment or commercial real estate, but do so through a company (e.g., a limited liability company) in order to limit liability and achieve certain asset protection goals. If an interest in the property is given, it may also be advantageous to make the donation through an LLC, as some appraisal discounts may be available for tax purposes. The gift of real estate could be made by giving the minor, who is held by a custodian, an interest in the LLC. For example, the custodian could transfer assets to an LLC. In return, the LLC would issue an interest in the LLC to the custodian to keep it for the minor. After the capital injection, the LLC would acquire direct ownership of the assets and the custodian would hold an interest in the LLC as a custodian in accordance with FUTMA.

Neither FUTMA nor the LLC Act prohibits the issuance of membership interest to the custodian of a minor. The assets transferred to the LLC would be managed by a controlling member or manager other than the minor, usually the child`s guardian or parents. When the child reaches the age of 21, the guardian transfers the membership interest to the minor who is now an adult. Florida LLC Organizers: A Florida limited liability company may be formed by one (1) or more persons who are 18 years of age or older. Florida LLC Filing Procedure: When forming a Florida LLC, the Florida organization`s articles must be filed with the Florida Secretary of State. The Florida organization`s statutes must state the following: The reality is that most states require budding entrepreneurs to be 18 years old before they can start their own LLCs as organizers (the person who submits incorporation documents). However, that doesn`t mean you have to put your idea on hold until then. These laws vary from state to state, and some states, such as California, Delaware, Nevada, and Wyoming, do not specify the age at which to form an LLC. Therefore, it is best to contact your secretary of state`s office and check the specific rules.

Another alternative is to set up a manager management corporate structure for the LLC, rather than the default member-run structure. The managers` management structure means that the LLC company is led by one or more designated managers. Managers can be LLC members, non-members, or both. Under this structure, managers would be adults and minor members would be passive investors who are not involved in the day-to-day operations of the LLC. While the standard structure for LLCs is membership management, it can be changed and the structure must be set out in the LLC`s articles or in a written operating agreement. The donation of a share of an LLC to minors is not limited to LLCs holding real estate. Almost any interest in an LLC, corporation, or other type of business can be provided. The Company may hold interests in other companies, brokerage accounts or other assets. One could even pass on to a minor an interest in an operational business (if desirable should be discussed with a lawyer and a tax specialist).

The donation must be well documented. It is important that the enterprise contract, shareholders` agreement or articles of association expressly acknowledge that the share is held by a custodian bank for a minor. Do you have an innovative business idea that you would like to bring to market? We are here to support you. Find out if you can legally start a business as a minor. We`ll help you understand the rules surrounding minors who form and own their own limited liability company (LLC) and how to do so. In the state of Florida, it is recommended to have other LLC members over the age of 18. If an adult parent, sibling or adult friend is a member of the LLC with the minor, members over the age of 18 must sign all contracts on behalf of the LLC. Adult members must conduct legal business, enter into contracts, and sign all documents on behalf of the LLC.

The problems that can arise when the LLC is exclusively in the possession of a minor are due to the legal regulations that govern contracts signed by minors. In Florida, a minor is allowed to enter into a contract, although that contract is considered voidable. Legal requirements for minors invoking a contract can make it very risky for the other non-minor party. Because of these minor legal requirements, other companies or individuals may be reluctant to enter into an agreement with an LLC owned exclusively by a minor because the contract is not legally binding. Having an adult as a member with a minor is not only allowed, but would also avoid the problems associated with making agreements with other people or companies. Florida also allows professionals such as accountants, lawyers, and doctors to form a professional limited liability company (PLLC). However, after forming a limited liability company (LLC), you must continually take important steps to ensure that your business is compliant with regulations. Note that these steps are also essential to maintaining an LLC`s limited liability policy for its owners. How to avoid contractual problems with a minor as a member of an LLC? Every entrepreneur knows that business contracts and other legal documents are essential to running a successful business because they protect you and your assets. However, when it comes to running a teenage business, one point to keep in mind is that most contracts are not legally binding if they are only signed by a minor. In most states, minors are not considered legally competent to enter into a binding agreement, which renders all signed contracts null and void. In addition, the LLC may file a power of attorney statement with the Secretary of State stating that only adult members will serve as representatives of the LLC with the power to legally bind the company to contracts.

However, FUTMA does not limit the type of assets a custodian bank can hold for a minor. In fact, FUTMA defines “custodial property” as “any interest in property transferred to a depositary under this Act, as well as the income and proceeds of such share of property.” In other words, FUTMA allows a custodian to hold virtually any type of property for a minor. This could include ownership of real estate; personal property; companies, such as limited liability companies and corporations; Intangible assets such as property rights, licenses and intellectual property rights. The key to holding such a share of ownership as a custodian bank for a minor is to make it clear that the custodian bank holds the assets for the minor. FUTMA stipulates that a share of custody for the minor is clearly indicated. A minor may own an LLC individually or with an adult. There is nothing in Florida`s new revised Limited Liability Companies Act that prevents a minor from being a member of an LLC. While an LLC may be the exclusive property of a minor, problems can arise when the minor would benefit from having an adult as another member of the LLC.

The problems that can arise if the LLC is exclusively in the possession of a minor are due to the legal regulations that apply to contracts claimed by minors. In Florida, a minor can enter into a contract, but that contract is voidable. Cancellable means that the minor can evade one of the obligations of the contract without effect, while the other non-minor party does not have this possibility. Finally, and in accordance with article 710.123 of futma, once the minor reaches the age of majority, custody of the interest in the LLC ends and the depositary is required to assign and transfer the interest in the LLC to the minor. However, the LLC, under the direction of the controlling member or manager, will continue to participate directly in the assets even if the minor has reached the age of majority under FUTMA. The child receives all the rights associated with the interest, which may include the right to vote on the interest in the LLC or otherwise participate as a member of the LLC. Also note that an adult as a member with a minor is not only legal, but would in many ways help avoid problems in entering into and implementing agreements with other people or companies. Florida LLC Annual Report: All Florida limited liability companies must file an annual report to receive active status. The first report is expected within one year of its constitution.
