Iowa Code 489.403 - Liability for contributions
Iowa Code > Title XII > Subtitle 2 > Chapter 489 > § 489.403. Liability for contributions
Current as of: 2009
1. A person’s obligation to make a contribution to a limited liability company is not excused by the person’s death, disability, or other inability to perform personally. If a person does not make a required contribution, the person or the person’s estate is obligated to contribute money equal to the value of the part of the contribution which has not been made, at the option of the company.
2. A creditor of a limited liability company which extends credit or otherwise acts in reliance on an obligation described in subsection 1 may enforce the obligation.
3. An operating agreement may provide that the interest of any member who fails to make a contribution that the member is obligated to make is subject to specified penalties for, or specified consequences of, such failure. The penalty or consequence may take the form of reducing or eliminating the defaulting member’s proportionate interest in a limited liability company, subordinating the member’s interest to that of a nondefaulting member, a forced sale of the member’s interest, forfeiture of the member’s interest, the lending by other members of the amount necessary to meet the member’s commitment, a fixing of the value of the member’s interest by appraisal or by formula and redemption, or sale of the member’s interest at such value or other penalty or consequence.
