IP Australia has introduced new fee changes to its registered intellectual property rights regime of patent, trade marks, designs and plant breeders rights.  A complete list of these changes can be found on IP Australia’s website at Fee Changes.


The most significant change in relation to trade marks has been the abolition of the registration fee of $300 which was payable upon acceptance of a trade mark and before it could be registered.



If you have any queries of the fees changes please do not hesitate to contact us.
