General information about LEI code
LEI code or Legal Entity Identifier is a fairly recent phenomenon. It was established as a must have back in 2014 for all companies that want to make transactions in the European markets with stocks and bonds or other types of securities. The EMIR (European market infrastructure regulation) imposed this as a requirement and according to the law every legal entity that wants to do business in Europe needs to have this code. The LEI code is a unique code based on the global ISO 17442 standard. It’s alphanumeric and consists of 20 characters and it’s what allows the authorities to recognize every legal entity on the market. It’s what makes the European market more stable and transparent ever since 2018.
Who needs to have a LEI code?

Is your company required to have a LEI code?
This depends entirely on the type of transactions your company does. If you’re a legal entity that trades in securities, you definitely need a LEI code. If you’re a charity, a limited company, a trust, an association or any other form of organization that does business in the European market you need a LEI code. LEI codes serve one purpose and that it to make the global financial ecosystem completely transparent and to make sure that everything is done by the law. LEI codes are regulated by a number of EU directives and it’s a similar requirement in the US as well.
Here’s who doesn’t need a LEI code
As we already mentioned before all legal entities that trade with securities need a LEI code to do business in the European markets. If you don’t have a LEI code registered, you will not be allowed to trade on the market. However, there are some instances in which a company doesn’t require a LEI code. If your company has a capital insurance deposit you don’t need a LEI number. This is so because your company is not the formal owner of the investments, rather it’s the insurance company. Also, if a company trades with unlisted shares and fund shares, it doesn’t need a LEI number. Or if a company trades with listed bonds or corporate certificates it also doesn’t need a LEI code. And lastly, a LEI code is only required for legal entities. If you’re a private entity and trade in securities you don’t need a LEI code.

LEI numbers and their function
A LEI number is an alphanumeric code that’s consisted of 20 characters. It serves the sole purpose to enable the authorities to identify a company based on its LEI code. It makes up for a more transparent and smoother operation of the global market. It enables complete transparency and offers the authorities information about who’s running a certain company that trades on the market.
GLEIF is the organization that issues the LEI numbers but a company can register for its LEI code through various providers. Every LEI number has the same structure: the first 4 numbers tell you who issued the LEI code. The next two numbers are always two zeros, and then the rest of the numbers are a unique combination of numbers for every company. And the last two numbers are control numbers.
