Pricing; cost-effective trade mark registration

At Trade Mark Associates, we ensure that all our services are delivered at a reasonable price, and with no hidden costs. There are two main parts to the price: the relevant government fee and the fee that Trade Mark Associates charges to file your registration. The government fee varies depending on the countries and /or territories in which the trade mark is to be registered. Our fees for trade mark applications are amongst the lowest on the market. Examples of the fee structure are provided below.

Please note that the prices quoted assume that your application is not opposed and that the brand you are applying for is distinctive, and not generic or descriptive. If your application requires further time to be spent on it, we will advise you of this fact and, if you wish to proceed further we can agree a fixed price to deal with the issue.

Trade Mark Associates attorneys are qualified in the UK and Ireland, and this enables them to file trade mark applications throughout Europe. The EU registration is based in the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). EUIPO fees are in euros, so the cost varies with the £/euro exchange rate. The Trade Mark Associates fee for undertaking a trade mark filing on your behalf, are in British pounds. We present the figures this way in order to be as precise and clear as possible, please call us if you need further information on this pricing.

We also undertake trade mark renewals; the Trade Mark Associates fee is as above, but reduced by £50 (as no search is required). For renewals the official fee (e.g. the UKIPO or the EUIPO fee) is the same as the official fee for registration listed above. For example, a UK trade mark renewal in two classes would carry a Trade Mark Associates fee for the renewal of £200, and an official fee of £220, totalling £420.
