When an LLC is formally established after filing the articles of organization with a state's secretary of state, it's free to pass resolutions. Unlike corporations, LLCs are not required by law to use resolutions, nor are there any clear guidelines for doing it.
There are still benefits to passing resolutions within an LLC. For a start, LLC members and managers are bound by what's decided in the resolutions. It's particularly useful for multi-member LLCs to pass resolutions and create an operating agreement for the company.
One essential thing to keep in mind is that any LLC member has the right to propose a resolution. Whether the resolution will pass depends on most members voting in favor with the exact percentage determined by the rules governing the LLC. LLC resolutions are used for many purposes.
Some of the most common resolutions requiring voting have to do with opening a bank account or applying for a loan. An LLC resolution is also crucial when it's time to vote for a new LLC member or delegate LLC authority. Other uses may include buying real estate, approving profit distributions, and signing significant contracts.
Depending on your state, an LLC Resolution may also be known as:
Limited Liability Resolution
LLCs are not required to pass resolutions, but some of them do so anyway. Sometimes banks and lenders may ask to see a relevant LLC resolution. In particular, this may be because they want to make sure who has the authority to sign documents for the LLC. Or if they're going to make sure that the company's records are in order.

After an LLC resolution has been passed, all the members who voted need to sign the document. The person designated to write and store the resolution is also required to sign it. However, there's no need to involve a notary public for the document to be valid, as it's an internal document rarely used outside the LLC.
After the LLC resolution has been signed and adopted by the company, it should be kept with the rest of the company's written records. A hard copy is always good to have available too.
The designated person responsible for the resolution can distribute it digitally to the members and managers for record-keeping purposes.
