Need help managing the audit needs of your Hawaii Captive?

JLK Rosenberger serves captive insurance throughout the state of Hawaii assisting with their audit, tax and risk management needs. The reporting and other requirements imposed on companies by the Hawaii Department of Insurance and other regulators are complex and regularly changing. Careful consideration should be exercised when determining how to handle and report various items such as leases, credit losses, and loss reserve discounting.

We have significant experience serving the various types of captive insurance companies established in Hawaii including single owner-reinsurance only, single owner – direct and reinsurance, multi-owner, sponsored captives, and reinsurance or excess insurance. The Hawaii Revised Statuses, Title 24, Chapter 431, Article 19 clearly spells out the complex rules and regulations these captive insurance companies must follow in order to maintain compliance with state regulators. The experienced team at JLK Rosenberger provides the guidance and direction needed to keep efforts on track and in good standing.
