When is my annual report or annual statement filing due and will I be notified when it is due?

At the beginning of each filing quarter, the Business Registration Division will post a news release to its home page, under “What’s New.” The release serves as a reminder to filers and contains filing information and updates from the Division.

For online filers, an email reminder to file annual reports goes out on the first day of the quarter in which the annual report is due. Approximately two weeks before the end of the quarter in which the annual report is due, a second email reminder will be sent if the Division has not yet received the annual report.

For paper filers, postcard reminders are mailed out at the end of the first month of the quarter in which the annual report is due. Postcard reminders are mailed to those who have not submitted their annual report in the first month of the quarter in which the annual report is due.

The Business Registration Division does not utilize any other third-party company to collect or file annual business reports. Please see our June 2020 News Release regarding unofficial solicitations for more information. You can also email the Business Registration Division at [email protected] or call (808) 586-2727 to verify the legitimacy of a notice you receive regarding your Hawaii business filing.

To check on the status of your business online, visit Hawaii Business Express and enter your business name in the search box.
