Minnesota LLC Articles of Organization – Organizer

M.S. § 322C.0201, Subd. 1 identifies that a Minnesota limited liability company is formed by an Organizer filing Minnesota LLC Articles of Organization with the office of the Minnesota Secretary of State, by providing as follows:

Subdivision 1.  Organizers.

Articles of organization must state:

(1)  the name of the limited liability company, which must comply with section 322C.0108;

Under M.S. Chapter 322C, Minnesota LLC Articles of Organization are sufficient if they include the three basic articles recited above.

Minnesota LLC Articles of Organization – Business Purpose

Under M.S. Chapter 322B, it was common for Minnesota LLC Articles of Organization to recite that the Company would be organized for either:

However, under M.S. Chapter 322C, a Minnesota limited liability company:

  • need not have a business purpose.

Subject to section 322C.0112, subdivision 3,articles of organization may also contain statements as to matters other than those required by subdivision 2. . . .

Minnesota LLC Articles of Organization – Duration of the Company

While there is no requirement that Minnesota LLC Articles of Organization filed under M.S. Chapter 322C state a term of duration – either limited or perpetual – the fill-in-the-blank Minnesota LLC Articles of Organization form offered by the office of the Minnesota Secretary of State contains a statement of perpetual duration.

Conclusion;

Minnesota LLC Articles of Organization

While Minnesota limited liability company fill in the blank legal forms can be obtained from a number of different Internet legal firms – such documents seem to be overpriced for the limited benefits they provide.

Basic Minnesota LLC Articles of Organization are available for free on the web site of the office of the Minnesota Secretary of State.

In addition, the legal information provided by Internet legal firms is often written by attorneys licensed in states other than Minnesota – and of dubious value.
