I have a newly formed LLC in California which I did through Legal Zoom. I understand I need to be careful with cash flow (with respect to where it comes from and goes). I am also in the process of establishing a bank account with BofA. Obviously a company doesn't just form with cash in the bank so I, as the sole member, need to place an initial 'investment' into the account. Do I simply write a check from my personal account to the company account? I would prefer to do this just once but I have a feeling I may have to infuse cash a few times. I DO NOT intend for cash to go the other way (until money is coming in and I can pay myself).
Also, I purchased a $9,000 piece of machinery prior to forming the LLC (with the intent to use it for the company). The machine has not yet been delivered but should arrive soon. I have all the documents for that purchase. I had them use the company name on the invoice but I paid with my personal funds. Is this a problem? Do I need to do anything other than retain all the documents related to the purchase?
Please point out any flaws in my thinking and slap me around a bit. I would have thought this might be a common question but I was unable to find a similar question through search.
