Hawaii Registered Agent

A local Hawaii registered agent is required when registering to do business in Hawaii.

What is a Hawaii registered agent?

A Hawaii registered agent can be either a business or an individual that you list on your corporate paperwork with the state. The Hawaii registered agent is responsible for receiving annual report notices and legal notices on your behalf, and forwarding them to your organization. Hawaii registered agents must have a physical location in Hawaii and be present at that address during normal business hours. Usually a sheriff’s deputy or process server will deliver a law suit to the Hawaii resident agent’s address. It is also common for court papers to be delivered by certified mail to the Hawaii registered agent at the registered office address and that will be legal proof that you have been served, whether or not your registered agent delivers the legal notice to your company.

The Hawaii registered agent’s task is to be available at the address listed as the HI registered office address during regular business hours. Important documents from the state will be sent to the Hawaii resident agent’s address.
