Trademark Costs

How much does an trademarks application cost?

Trademarks costs will depend on the number of classes required to specify your goods and services.

The Nice Classification divides all goods and service into 45 distinct classes, which must be addressed when preparing any new trademark application. As amendment options are extremely limited after filing, a Trademark Attorney has the responsibility of preparing a specification with adequate scope to cover the intended use of your trademark.

While there are a number of low-cost online filing options, most place the onus on the Applicant and only overlay a free filing service offered by IP Australia and IPONZ.

Based on experience, indicative costs for professionally preparing and filing a trademark application would be:

  • Meeting with Client to discuss the proposed mark, simple search of the register, professionally preparing a specification of goods and services for consideration and approval, and filing an Australia or New Zealand trademark application, is typically $550 + gov fees.
  • Filing costs for foreign trademark applications (outside Australia or New Zealand) using the Madrid system, will depend on jurisdiction, is typically in range $660-990 + gov fees.

Patentable provides estimates or capped-fee quotes for preparing and filing trademark applications. Please note that there are also further costs incurred with trademark prosecution, registration and ongoing maintenance.
