For transactions in the interest rate, FX, and credit derivative markets, a legal entity identification (LEI) is required. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has made LEI mandatory for enterprises and organizations with a total fund-based and non-fund-based credit exposure of more than Rs 50 crore. Find the best fit that is suitable for you in this article.
The legal entity identification will aid banks and credit providers in monitoring business borrowers’ exposure. It will make it impossible for banks to make several loans against the same asset. Companies can obtain an LEI through any Local Operating Unit or the assistance of service providers like Registration Agents. Our primary goal is to assist Indian businesses in obtaining an LEI in a timely and straightforward manner.
What is the price of the LEI?
The cost of an LEI varies depending on the service provider. The cost of an LEI is determined by the organization’s pricing structure, not by a “better” working LEI code. LEI is merely a technique for identifying legal entities (who engage in financial activities such as stock investments) to gain a better understanding of global financial transactions, including financial counterparty identification, transparency, and risk exposure.
As a result, it is recommended that when registering an LEI code, the most significant consideration be the LEI pricing. The LEI price includes the initial registration fee for the chosen period as well as the GLEIF fee. For one year, the GLEIF surcharge is now 11 USD per application.

How do You get an LEI?
The Local Operating Unit (LOU) or the LEI Registration agency can provide an LEI. A registration form must be completed and sent to the service provider by legal organisations (either the Registration Agent or any other LEI service provider). The LEI registration form is available here.
Without the need to create an account, LEI Register provides a simple and convenient registration form. This allows clients to fill out the form fast, either manually or via the company’s data autofill feature. The company data autofill option improves the user experience and speeds up the LEI registration procedure.
What is the procedure for renewing your LEI?
The procedure of renewing an LEI is quite similar to the process of registering an LEI. The customer must complete the LEI renewal form by providing either the firm name or the LEI number. The corporate information is then automatically entered into the form fields. The information must be updated if it has changed because the LEI was first registered (such as company contact number, address etc.)
What types of payments are accepted?
Credit cards can be used to purchase particular Legal Entity Identifiers. We created the LEI solution for volume/bulk LEIs. Bulk purchases (for your own firm or for your clients) result in lower costs and credited purchases. LEI contains capabilities for discovery, bulk upload, automated renewal, and API access, as well as an accelerated LEI service.
