What is a LEI code? Do I need one?

The Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) code is a 20-character alphanumeric code (ISO 17442 standard) that enables clear and unique identification of legal entities participating in financial transactions. Each LEI is unique, permanent, consistent and portable for each entity.

Who needs a LEI?

A number of European regulations require this code to identify legal entities participating in financial markets. For example, if your company operates with bonds and equity your bank will need you to obtain a LEI code to keep using these services.

When do we need it?

It will be mandatory after January the 3rd 2018.

How can I obtain a LEI in Spain?

In the case of Spain, the codes are issued and maintained by the Registro Mercantil. Fargas can deal with the management and presentation of the application. Once submitted you will receive by email your LEI certificate that you must renew annually.

What fees do I have to pay to the Registro Mercantil to obtain the LEI code?

The Registro Mercantil establishes a fee of € 100 for the first application and € 50 for each annual renewal (VAT not included).

What do I need to do for Fargas to process my LEI code?

Contact us and we will take care of the whole process. Once submitted to the Registry, the qualification process has a maximum period of 15 working days, although you will generally receive an email with your LEI certificate in 4 business days.
