FURTHER INFORMATION ON OUR FEE STRUCTURE
Classes – Trade Mark registration is dependant on the number of classes covered by the application. Each extra class will incur an additional $550 inclusive.
GST – GST is included in the above fees.
Examination – We file your application using the IP Australia Headstart application process. This means that your trade mark will be formally filed in around 2-5 working days. Although we will receive a preliminary assessment from IP Australia at the time of filing, all applications must be formally examined by IP Australia in around 4-6 weeks. If IP Australia reject your application once it is formally examined, we will contact you with details of the objections which will incur a fixed fee of $330 inclusive.
Opposition – If the mark is opposed during the 2 month opposition period, additional fees may apply. We will contact you with brief details of the opposition and to request your further instructions. This will incur a fixed fee of $330 inclusive.
Registration costs – We do not charge costs to send you the certificate of registration.
Exact Trade Mark Search – We conduct an exact trade mark search before filing the application. If no exact trade marks are revealed, we will proceed to file the application. Be aware that there may be similar pending applications/registrations on the Trade Mark Register not revealed by this search. Only a Full Trade Mark Search will reveal these marks.
Full Trade Mark Search – This covers an extensive search of the IP Australia trademark database, ASIC database, business names, company names and domain names. If you would like to arrange a full trade mark search, contact us.
