48-2c-412.   Low-profit limited liability company.

            (1) (a) To be a low-profit limited liability company, a company shall:

            (i) state in its articles of organization that it is a low-profit limited liability company;

            (ii) organize under this chapter; and

            (iii) be organized for a business purpose that satisfies, and at all times operates to satisfy each of the requirements under Subsection (1)(b).

            (b) A low-profit limited liability company:

            (i) shall significantly further the accomplishment of one or more charitable or educational purposes within the meaning of Section 170(c)(2)(B), Internal Revenue Code;

            (ii) shall demonstrate that it would not be formed but for the company's relationship to the accomplishment of a charitable or educational purpose;

            (iii) subject to Subsection (3), may not have as a significant purpose the production of income or the appreciation of property; and

            (iv) may not have as a purpose to accomplish one or more political or legislative purposes within the meaning of Section 170(c)(2)(D), Internal Revenue Code.

            (2) (a) If a company that is a low-profit limited liability company at its formation at any time ceases to meet a requirement to be a low-profit limited liability company under Subsection (1), the company:

            (i) ceases to be a low-profit limited liability company on the day on which the company no longer meets the requirement; and

            (ii) if it continues to meet the requirements of this chapter to be a limited liability company, continues to exist as a limited liability company that is not a low-profit limited liability company.

            (b) A low-profit limited liability company's failure to meet a requirement of Subsection (1) may be:

            (i) voluntary, in order to convert to a limited liability company that is not a low-profit limited liability company; or

            (ii) involuntary.

            (c) If a low-profit limited liability company ceases to be a low-profit limited liability company in accordance with Subsection (2)(a), the company shall:

            (i) change its name to conform with Section 48-2c-106; and

            (ii) amend its articles of organization in accordance with Section 48-2c-405.

            (3) Notwithstanding Subsection (1), if a low-profit limited liability company produces significant income or capital appreciation, in the absence of other factors, the fact that the low-profit limited liability company produces significant income or capital appreciation is not conclusive evidence of a significant purpose involving the production of income or the appreciation of property.
