Questions and answers

Do you have an additional question?

What is an LEI?
An LEI code or Legal Entity Identifier is a unique number, consisting of 20 symbols, that allows for identification within the global financial system. An LEI number is issued to a company just once and is unique.
Who is obliged to request an LEI number?
Broadly speaking, Australian or foreign entities that trade in OTC derivatives within the Australian marketplace should obtain an LEI in order to comply with ASIC’s regulations. Australian entities transacting in securities within the European marketplace should also be aware of the obligations imposed by MiFID II and EMIR . Financial Institutions should also be cognisant of their requirements under ASIC’s Clearing Rules. If you’re unsure whether you might need an LEI to operate in other financial markets around the world, consult LEI ROC’s webpage.
How much does an LEI number cost?
An LEI number costs from 90$ a year. Our full price list is available on our homepage and upon application.
How long is the LEI number valid?
The LEI number is valid for 1 year from the date of issue. The number must then be extended (via a renewal appication) for the following year.
What do we do if company data changes in the Australian Business Register?
Throughout the LEI number period, it is important that the company’s data in the GLEIF database matches the data in the Commercial Register. If the company’s data changes in the Commercial Register, please let us know by e-mail – info@australialei.com. We will change the data in the GLEIF database (free of charge).
How long does it take to issue an LEI number?
An LEI number is usually issued within 1-2 working days of payment. If the legal structure of the company (consolidation group) is complex and additional information is required, it may take longer to issue the number. We issue 99% of number in less than 24 hours.
Can I apply LEI for a Trust?

Yes, we also accept LEI applications for Trusts. If Trust is not registered with ABN or ACN, please insert “Not Registered” as a company number in the LEI application.

Why do you need an LEI number?
An LEI number is required for reporting transactions made by a legal entity to supervisory authorities. In other words, more detailed information is wanted about who, where, and with whom transactions are being completed in financial markets.
How can a company request an LEI number?
Australia LEI makes requesting an LEI number for a company easy! Complete the application and pay us using internet banking. Then, wait a few days and the LEI number and the receipt will be sent to your email.
How do you pay for an LEI number?
After submitting and signing your application, you can easily pay with debit or credit card, PayPal or bank transfer.
How do multiannual LEIs work?
Multiannual LEIs save you time and money. For example, if you order a 3-year LEI, regisration of the LEI with a validity of 1 year is included alongside the automatic renewal of your LEI number for a further 2 years. By doing so, you do not have to deal with the renewal of your LEI number every year and, since the annual price of our multiannual contracts is cheaper, you will also save money! LEI renewal is performed 30-60 days before your next renewal date so your LEI is always valid in the GLEIF database.
Where can I verify the existence or validity of an LEI?
The validity of the LEI number can be verified on the Australia LEI homepage by using the search. Our database is connected to the GLEIF base and Australian Business Register and it is updated four times a day. LEI number can be also verified on the website of the GLEIF.
Why use Australia LEI services?
Australia LEI is an official LEI registration agent, which means we comply with all regulations and data transmission standards. This is especially important for companies considering registering for multiannual renewal of its LEI, since the company makes an advance payment to the registration agent for the entire period. Our database is integrated with that of Australian Business Register and is updated automatically. This reduces the administrative burden on your part, as data changes within the GLEIF database are automated. The use of an official registration agent ensures secure data processing and quality service. Australia LEI is working in close cooperation with its affiliated sites in various countries.
