mdp Admin | October 7th, 2016

IP Australia recently conducted a review of its official fees in an attempt to streamline and simplify the trade mark application process.

From 10 October 2016, the trade mark official fees will be changing, the two major changes are:

  1. Increased application fees

These fees have increased to $330 per mark, per class (from $200 per mark, per class).

  1. No registration fees

If a trade mark is accepted for registration, there will be no registration fee payable (previously, these fees were $300 per mark, per class).

Please note these changes will only affect trade marks applied for after 11 October 2016.

Full details of the changes can be seen on IP Australia’s website.
