IP Australia fee increases for trade mark applications effective 10 October 2016

From 10 October 2016, IP Australia fees changed. The fee changes affect trade mark applications as follows:

  • application fee for the first class, from $200 to $330;
  • application fee for each other class, from $200 to $330;
  • registration fee for the first class and each other class, from $300 per class to nil; and
  • renewal fee for 10 years, from $300 to $400.

While the IP Australia fee changes means the total price of some Cleardocs document packages will change, Cleardocs fees and charges remain the same.
