Admitting a new member to an LLC or a partner to a partnership is a complex matter. Substantial voting, financial, and tax consequences depend on whether the LLC or partnership is issuing a new interesting to the incoming member or the incoming member acquired his or her interest by buying it from an existing member. A lot also depends on what type of asset—capital, property, or services—the incoming member contributes to the entity and what type of interest—a capital interest with liquidation rights or a profits interest—the incoming member receives. There are also substantial issues of whether the incoming member acquires only economic rights or voting and other rights. This program provides you with a guide to the practical process and consequences of admitting a new member to an LLC or partnership.

• Admission of new members/partners by issuing a new interests vs. sale of interest by existing member/partner to a buyer
• Understanding the differences between succeeding to economic rights and voting and other rights
• Tax consequences of each type of admission on the entity, the new member, and the departing member
• Contributions of capital vs. services by the new member to the entity
• Receipt by the new member of capital vs. profits interests
• Operating vs. investment assets: What type of assets does the entity have?
