About Your Hawaii Registered Agent

Let’s talk a little bit about finding a registered agent in Hawaii.

Why are there registered agents in the first place?

Long ago, you just herded sheep and paid tribute to the lord of the land. Gradually, economies evolved, new company structures like limited liability companies and corporations emerged. These types of business entities were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Business entities are afforded standing that is separated from the people who put them together. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for people to figure out that they could avoid litigation by personally hiding out from process servers. So, to get rid of that loophole, most jurisdictions compel business entities to select a “registered agent.”

Briefly, who can act as a registered agent?

Your Hawaii resident agent needs to be a company or person who is a legitimate resident of the state. A registered agent ought to be on hand to accept service of process during normal business hours. Registered agents in Hawaii must provide a lawful, physical address within the state of Hawaii.
