OUR FEES

UK TRADE MARK SEARCH AND APPLICATION FEES

A free and standard trade mark clearance search will take approximately 2-3 days to complete. An express clearance search will be completed within 24 hours. Our standard and express clearance searches will also include our advice to whether your proposed trade mark is distinctive enough for registration purposes.

If you decide to proceed with an application to register your trade mark then a ‘Standard’ application will take approximately 4 months to be granted registration. A ‘Fast Track’ application will take approximately 3½ months to be granted registration. A ‘Right Start’ application allows you to split the application fee into 2 separate payments, the 2nd payment is due within 7 days after the application has been examined.

Please remember that there are no hidden charges.  For example, unlike many of our competitors, we do not charge for additional work associated with responding to objections raised by the Trade Marks Registry or work associated with the defence of your trade mark application against a third party opposition or forwarding the registration certificate.

See our Terms and Conditions of Purchase in respect to our offer of a "Money Back Guarantee".
