Did you get your LEI code from PRH before 27 September 2017? File your parent entity details now to keep the code activated

If your company or entity got its LEI code from the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) before 27 September 2017, we have no information about the parent entities (if any) of the company or entity.

Therefore you must now submit your parent entity details to us immediately or indicate that there are no details.

If you fail to file the details, we cannot renew your LEI code even if you pay the annual fee. In practice, this means that the LEI will be inactivated.

The PRH is sending a reminder letter to all companies and entities that got their LEI before 27 September 2017 and have not filed their parent entity details yet.

The PRH issues LEI codes by permission of – and on conditions laid down by – the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF), which governs the LEI system globally. These conditions require us to collect parent entity details from LEI owners.

What parent entity details need to be filed

You need to file the details of your direct and ultimate parent entities. Read more about the parent entities you must file details about.

If your company or entity has no parent entities, indicate that you are not disclosing parent entity details and select a reason for that.

How to submit the details to the PRH

Fill in the form ‘Update parent entity details’ using our online LEI service.

Filing the details is free of charge. However, you will be asked in the form to give your invoicing details for paying the annual LEI code fee.

At the same time, you must read and agree to our LEI service agreement and terms of use. GLEIF requires that the PRH and the LEI owner enter into an agreement.

If you file parent entity details, you must send in documents showing the relationship to the parent entity. Consolidated financial statements are the best documents for this purpose.
