State Launches Revamped Business List Website

Upgrades Include Mobile Device Compatibility

 

HONOLULU —The Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA) Business Registration Division (BREG) has launched an upgraded Business Entity List Builder website with a new, intuitive, mobile-friendly design.

 

The Business Entity List Builder provides customers with the ability to run a customized search of businesses registered with BREG and create a list of these businesses based on the selected criteria. Lists can be created by entity type, zip code, registration date and status. This popular service was originally launched in 2002 and has now been upgraded with an enhanced, fluid interface that works well on computers as well as touch-screen tablets and smart phones.

 

“The new web design is easier to navigate and intuitive to use on all devices,” Securities Commissioner Tung Chan said. “The upgrade is part of the Abercrombie Administration’s goals of leveraging new technology to make it easier for businesses to access government services.”

 

Those interested in using the improved system can visit https://hbe.ehawaii.gov/listbuilder to create a customized list of Hawaii businesses.

 

The online Business Entity List Builder solution is created in partnership with Hawaii Information Consortium, LLC, the official Internet portal manager of eHawaii.gov.

The Business Registration Division maintains the business registry for all corporations, limited liability companies, general partnerships, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships and limited liability limited partnerships conducting business activities in the State. In addition, the registry contains trade names, trademarks, service marks and publicity name rights.
