LLC has 4 equal members. 3 members agree to sell their interest to the 4th member and his wife. The purchase agreement reads that Members 2,3,4 agree to sell and Member 1 & spouse agree to purchase all "interest of Sellers in and to Company, LLC including all accounts receivable, equipment and furnishings for the purchase price of $300,000 and assumption or satisfaction of all outstanding debt of Company, LLC." There is a new loan created in the name of the LLC and the old debt was paid off and checks were written to Members 2, 3, and 4 for $100,000.

I'm drawing a blank here on how to book this. Capital Accounts prior to this event was basically zero. I was thinking that this was going to be an outside purchase of interest, but now the LLC owes the bank.

Hey... so what was the usual process with equity transactions (i.e. net income)? Are you saying the business has no equity accounts altogether?

There was very little original contribution and their distributions thus far has pretty much matched their earnings.

Where did the 300,000 come from? Did the LLC float a loan and then buy them out or did Member 1 come up with 300,000 out of his own pocket to buy them out?

The LLC floated a new loan that payed off the old debt and the $300,000 to the old partners.

debt financed liquidation/technical termination? Does the LLC owned by the two remaining spouses constitute a partnership?
