Form Hawaii LLC or Incorporate in Hawaii

The State of Hawaii is in the Top 5 of most beautiful US States, and probably at the top of most beautiful places in the world.  Even with all this beauty, they also have a very robust business climate and advanced Corporations Division.  Their website and statutes are advanced and you can find a lot of great information online.  You are also able to file for your Corporation or LLC directly online with the Secretary of State.  On this page we will detail some of how this process will work.

Form an Hawaii LLC

To correctly form an LLC in Hawaii, you will need to follow the Hawaii statutes correctly.  But don't worry, we have some tips and suggestions for filing your LLC.  The purpose of filing for an LLC is to primarily operate a business, but with it comes a few benefits that should be mentioned:

  1. Limited liability company protection - keep your personal and business assets separate.
  2. Pass through taxation - This will allow income from the business to flow directly to the owners, limiting any double taxation.

Incorporate in Hawaii

The incorporation process in Hawaii involves a few steps and pieces of information that are very specific.  You must supply the correct information in the precise format, or the filing will be rejected.  But don't worry, if your filing gets rejected you typically will just loose time, and you can resubmit again.   

Naming a Hawaii Corporation

To name a Hawaii corporation you will need to ensure that you do not use any reserved words that may be restricted due to regulations.  You also want to make sure that you include one of the following ending identifiers:

  1. Corporation
  2. Incorporated
  3. Limited
  4. Corp.
  5. Inc.
  6. Ltd.

Other Requirements

Additional steps and information that must must be provided include:

  • Providing a mailing address for the principal business.
  • Name and street address of the registered agent.
  • The number of common shares at issuance.
  • The name and address of each incorporator.

And that is it for the filing.  If you want to see that form that is available, please check out the attached link on How to form a Corporation in Hawaii.
