The Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs’ Business Registration Division (BREG) announces that more than 700,000 business registration documents are now available for immediate online purchase at hbe.ehawaii.gov/documents/business.html.
The award-winning online service was initially launched in 2008, with 100,000 documents immediately available online, and the remainder available within one to three business days. The service received national recognition for its innovation, receiving top honors for technological innovation given by the International Association of Commercial Administrators (IACA) in 2008.
Over the last year, this service has grown in popularity with individuals and businesses purchasing documents to complete transactions with greater speed and ease. After redacting private information from stored documents, BREG has now made more than 700,000 documents available for purchase and immediate download, including articles of incorporation, annual filings, partnership and limited liability company formation documents, foreign statements of qualification and more.
“We hope our customers will enjoy the added convenience of our improved online services, which make it easier and faster to do business in Hawaii,” said Lawrence Reifurth, Director of the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs.
DCCA’s online services are administered through Hawaii Business Express (HBE). HBE is a multi-agency initiative that provides one-stop online registration services to new and existing businesses and now allows the public to buy business registration documents online. Since the creation of HBE, more than 33,000 businesses have been created online in Hawaii.
