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, too. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the practical process and consequences of admitting a new member or partnership or an LLC or partnership.
