If an annual report is due in the year of incorporation, the first report will not be due until the following calendar year. This report describes the financial position of the corporation for the fiscal year, as well as any indemnifications and advances made to directors of the corporation.

Dissolution

A Hawaii corporation may voluntarily elect to wind up and dissolve. A corporation must file a Certificate or Articles of Dissolution when it wishes to dissolve. United Agent Services will prepare your Certificate/Articles of Dissolution and submit it to the appropriate state agency to assist you in dissolving your corporation.
