The state of Hawaii regulates cash advance lenders. Under the laws of the state, lenders are forced to provide their customers with a copy of the contract. This paperwork states the fees and charges, transaction costs, and the annual percentage rate that the company charges for its services. No mention of collateral for cash advances is allowed in the transaction agreement, and the transaction itself is forbidden to be issued for collateral.

The restrictions placed upon Hawaii cash advance businesses dictate the terms of the agreement. The maximum allowed term for a cash advance is 31 days. The lender can issue each customer a loan maximum of $300 in any one transaction. The fees that a lender charges are limited to 15 percent of the loan amount. This is keeping in line with Chapter 478 of state laws. Any lender charging more than this amount is in violation of state law.

No new agreement can be started if a borrower has an outstanding cash advance with a lender. Only one loan at a time can be obtained from any single lender. Any existing loans must be repaid before a new agreement can be struck. This precludes a lender from providing a loan to a borrower in order to cover that borrower's previous loan with the same lender.

Unlike many states, Hawaii does not allow a cash advance lender to sue a borrower for failure to repay the loan. The lender has knowingly exchanged cash for a bad check, and has no recourse. However, a lender can charge a borrower a $20 fee should their check bounce. While this is meant to protect the borrower from harassment by the lender, it should be noted that the cash advance lender does have other means to attempt to collect the debt.
