Hawaii Annual Report Filing Directions

We’re Just Not Annoying®

HAWAII ANNUAL REPORT FILING INSTRUCTIONS

Every Hawaii business must file an annual report once a year with the Hawaii Business Registration Division. Some entities have reduced filing fees if you file online (recommended). Hawaii annual report due dates are set according to which quarter you originally filed your company. If you originally filed in October, your report would be due by December 31st. If you originally filed in August, your due date would be September 30th. You get the idea (if not, see the table below).

You can complete the annual filing with the Hawaii Business Registration Division online, on paper, or in person. Or, if you don’t want to deal with the hassle you can hire us to complete the annual report on your company’s behalf.

When is the Hawaii Annual Report Due?

HI Corporations, LLCs, LLLPs, LLPs, LPs and GPs must file annual reports with the Hawaii BREG by the end of the quarter you originally filed in. If you know the date you filed in Hawaii you can figure it out. Your Hawaii annual report will be due on one of the following dates:

  • March 31st
  • June 30th
  • Sept. 30th
  • Dec. 31st

Example: if you register with BREG on May 25th your first annual report will be due on June 30th of the next year and every June 30th after that.

Charities register with the Hawaii Attorney General and submit annual financial reports by the fifteenth day of the fifth month after their fiscal year end; typically May 15th. This is filed online and a link is furnished below.

Does Hawaii have initial report requirements?

No.

Late fees?
