Australian trade mark registration costs

Trade mark registration is the best way to stop counterfeiters

Trade marks are registered in relation to selected goods and services, which are categorised into different classes. The cost of the registration process varies depending on how wide a range of goods and/or services are selected. For a routine selection of goods or services falling into one class:

• optional searching to check whether a trade mark is available for use and registration typically costs about $1200;

• filing an application for trade mark registration typically costs about $880;

• analysing and responding to objections (if any are raised) typically costs about $1000, though much higher costs are possible if you are faced with serious objections and choose to argue the point;

• acceptance and registration typically costs about $800;

• renewals due every 10 years cost about $700.
