IP Australia Increases Fees 26 Aug 2020

IP Australia Increases Fees As of Thursday 1st October 2020, IP Australia will increase their fees. The increase will affect trade marks, patents and designs as well as costs awarded in proceedings. Of particular note, the official trade mark application fee will be increased from AU$330 to AU$400 per class. Accordingly, if you are considering filing an application in Australia, you may wish to do so before the end of September to take advantage of the lower official fees, particularly if your application will be filed in multiple classes.
