Direct Client Tariff
We have revised our tariffs for patent, trade mark and design applications with effect from July 1 2017.
Competitive fixed service fees for European patent applications
We understand that variable exchange rates and professional fees create uncertainty for patent applicants. As part of our ongoing efforts to provide a practical route to patent protection in Europe, we offer fixed service fees for filing European patent applications in three different currencies for our overseas clients.
Fixed service fees for:
• UK national patent filings
• European patent filings
• European phase entry from a PCT application
These fixed service fees apply to both direct European patent filings and European phase entry from a PCT application. We have also fixed our UK national patent filings costs to provide a cost-effective alternative to patent protection across the whole of Europe.
We have seen increasing numbers of UK national patent filings and are keen that our overseas clients are aware of this option. Our guidance note about the different options for patent protection in Europe can be viewed here.
We will keep these competitive service fees fixed for 2017. We hope these figures and our guide help your decisions about prospective European patent filings.
