Do LEI Numbers Need to be Renewed?

The annual renewal and verification of the data, which ensures trustworthy high-quality data, is one of the primary benefits of the Legal Entity Identifier. Because of the high quality of this data, businesses can use it to reduce counterparty risk and increase operational efficiency.

As a result, LEI renewal is critical. If a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) is not renewed on time, it will expire. If your LEI status has expired in the GLEIF database, it has an impact on your company branding and may hinder you from executing a transaction or reporting in the future.

Renewal prices for LEI

With LEI Register, LEI renewal prices are the same as LEI number prices. LEI offers multi-year LEI renewals to relieve clients of the annual burden of manually renewing their LEIs. Clients that renew an LEI for numerous years save money on each subsequent year purchased.

How do I get a new LEI?

LEI renewal follows a similar pattern to LEI registration and is nearly identical. The customer must complete the LEI renewal form by either entering the firm name or the LEI number. The corporate information is then automatically entered into the appropriate form fields. It’s critical to update all information that has changed since the LEI’s first registration (such as company phone number address etc.).

When you renew your LEI, how long does it take?

An LEI renewal is a rather short process in and of itself, however, switching LEI service providers (known as an LEI transfer) can take a few days (up to 7 days) to accomplish.

Transfer of LEI

The migration of the LEI code from one service provider to another is known as LEI transfer. Because the LEI is transferable, the client has a choice of service providers. If the client is dissatisfied with the prices, service, or data quality, the LEI can be transferred to another LEI issuer (LOU). The LEI number does not change during the transfer process. It is a back-end operation that is hidden from end-users. All LEI codes are recognized in all jurisdictions. Investment service providers are unable to distinguish LEI numbers based on the LOU.

When consumers decide to renew an LEI when their current LEI is managed by a different LOU, LEI sends them a particular form for LEI transfer.
