How to Set Up a Business in Hawaii

When you are ready to move forward with your business plans, you will need to make it official by filing the right paperwork with the state of Hawaii and the federal government. Once your company has been legally established and all the paperwork has been filed, you will be ready to officially take steps towards getting your new business up and running.
On the state side, Hawaii has a “single agency jurisdiction” which means that once you have filed your business registration with the Business Registration Division at the DCCA (The Department of Commerce & Consumer Affairs), there are no additional county filings necessary.
On the federal side, the Small Business Administration provides ten steps to help you get started. This is where LLC Formations comes in. We can help you set up your business easily and smoothly in Hawaii.  In a nutshell, the Small Business Administration guidelines include:
1. Conducting market research to gather information regarding similar businesses in the area and potential customers for your business to find out if a competitive advantage exists.
2. Writing a business plan as a roadmap on how to structure and grow your business and as a tool to help convince financial institutions, potential business partners, or investors that working with you will be a smart choice.
3. Fund your business by using your own capital, raising money, or borrowing the amount you will need to start your business.
4. Choosing the right business location or launching an online business. This could have a major effect on your legal requirements, revenue, and could affect your taxes.
5. Choosing the right legal structure for your business which will impact the requirements for your business registration, your personal liability, and the amount of taxes you will pay.
6. Choosing a business name that will reflect your brand in a favorable light.
7. Register your business to protect your brand and make your business dealings legal.
8. Apply for state and federal tax IDs. You will need your EIN (Employer Identification Number) to open your business bank account and pay taxes.
9. Apply for permits and licenses to make your business compliant and keep it running smoothly. The types of permits and licenses you will need to start your business will depend on many factors such as location, state, and industry.
10. Open a checking account for your business to handle day-to-day transactions and handle tax and legal issues. You will need the right paperwork and registrations to set up your business account with a bank.
