LEI owner: file your parent entity details by 27 September 2018 to keep your code activated

The Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) is collecting information about the parent entities of LEI owners. Therefore LEI owners must either submit their parent entity details to us or indicate that there are no such details (for example if there are no parent entities). We collect the details on conditions laid down by the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF), which governs the LEI system globally.

File your parent entity details by 27 September 2018

Submit your parent entity details to us or indicate that there are no details by 27 September 2018. If you fail to do this by the deadline, we will inactivate your LEI code. The code will no longer be valid even if you have already paid the annual fee to renew it.

In practice, inactivating the code means that your company or entity will not be able to trade in listed shares. Banks and investment service providers do not accept orders for listed securities from companies or entities with no valid LEI code.

How to file the details

Fill in the form ‘Update parent entity details’ using our online LEI service. In the form you need to indicate whether you are disclosing the details of your direct and ultimate parent entities. If you are not disclosing the details, select a reason for that (for example that there are no parent entities). Read more about the parent entities you must file details about.

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.

Remember to give the name and role (for example, responsible person in the company) of the person signing the form. Read more about who can sign an LEI form.

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.
