Running a Hawaii LLC

Running your Hawaii LLC is within your reach. We make it simple for you to complete the process:
Step 1. Get a Registered Agent
You can serve as your own Registered Agent, or we can help find you a professional. Either way, the Registered Agent and office must reside within the state.
Step 2. Set Up an EIN
The IRS needs a way to identify your business. An Employer Identification Number helps them do just that.
Step 3. Develop an LLC Operating Agreement
You can elect to create an LLC Operating Agreement but Hawaii does not require it. An operating agreement is important because it creates a framework for your Hawaii LLC.
Step 4. Hold a Meeting
Hawaii law does not have requirements when holding an organizational meeting but the process is simple and important. Gather all your LLC members to make high-level decisions like approving the LLC Operating Agreement and appointing officers.
Step 5. File a Statement of Information
Form BB-1 (Hawaii Basic Business Application) needs to be completed, along with a $20 payment.
