Posted on Jul 1, 2022 in Latest Department News, Newsroom

HONOLULU — The state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs’ (DCCA) Business Registration Division (BREG) reminds businesses to file their annual business reports.  The annual report filing period is related to the business entity’s registration date and can be filed at any time during the quarter in which the filing is due.

Businesses registered in quarter three (July – September) can now file their annual reports online at https://hbe.ehawaii.gov/annualsReports due in quarter three must be filed with BREG by midnight (HST) September 30, 2022 in order to avoid a late filing penalty fee.

LLCs, profit corporations and LLPs: $12.50; Nonprofit Corporations: $2.50; and Partnerships: $5.00. Accepted forms of payment online include credit card, eCheck, or through an eHawaii.gov subscriber account.

Please be cautious of any correspondence that does not come from BREG.  BREG does not endorse or utilize the services of any third-party company to collect or file annual business reports.

Businesses are encouraged to timely file reports to keep the entity in good standing, which may be a prerequisite for qualifying for contracts, loans and other forms of business assistance. If you are delinquent in filing your Hawaii annual report(s), you can submit your filing online and a $10.00 late fee will be assessed per year delinquent.
