As LEIs require annual renewal, and renewing an LEI isd a vital component of any regulated financial transaction ensuring it does not expire is often critical. By selecting automatic annual renewal, the LEI renewal will be automatically triggered by our system 30 days prior to its renewal.
The card details will be securely stored on Stripe and automatically deducted the annual renewal fee. You will receive notification reminders and invoices via email.
In an effort to reduce the annual task of renewing an LEI, we have introduced the multi-year LEI concept to our services. This allows you to register an LEI for up to 5 years. In many cases, and entity may only require an LEI for one year. However, in the case of an entity with a longer lifespan it is advised to register your LEI for up to 5 years.
Please note, the LEI renewal date will never show less than 1 year. This is because the LEI is required to be renewed every year. However, by choosing the 5 year, our system will trigger a renewal 60 days prior to the annual renewal date annually for the duration of the 5 years.
