FAQ

WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED?

To file a UK trademark application we do not need a Power of Attorney. However, we need the full name, address, postal code of the applicant. We also need your list of your products / services.

HOW MANY PRODUCTS DO I NEED?

It is really not about the number of goods, but to have a coverage. Above all, the goods / services must be covered that you will use in the next few years for sure. It also makes sense to take a step back and think in categories, not in concrete products.

WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST PITFALLS FOR UK trademarkS ?

The biggest pitfall of them all is lack of individual character. For instance, if the trademark is descriptive, it will not function as a brand properly and will be refused by the UKIPO. In other words, if you seek a UK trademark registration you have to come up with something new. On the other side, the second biggest pitfall is a conflicting earlier mark. Later, this could lead to the cancellation of the trademark. However, this risk can be minimized by trademark and market search.

HOW LONG IS A UK TRADEMARK PROTECTED?

The protection lasts ten years and can be renewed again and again. We would gladly assist you in the renewal of your trademark . If you want to renew a UK trademark, you should consult us in due course. It only makes sense to renew a trademark if there is a commercial purpose of it.

The renewal process is fairly simple, however, close attention must be paid to the deadlines and formalities.

ARE THE ABOVE FEES FOR UK trademarkS TAXED?

Of course. The prices exclude VAT however. Anyways, the official fees of the UKIPO have zero VAT. Plus there is no VAT if you come from outside of the EU. For EU clients we can normally use reverse charge VAT. In conclusion you do not have to pay our VAT. We check the usage of reverse charge mechanism each time well in advance. Consequently, our electronic invoices contain the right amount of VAT which is zero % in most of the cases. However, please note that official fees are not paid back by the UKIPO in any case. This is surely the case with all patent offices around the world.

ARE THESE trademark FEES FAIR and low?

As far as we know, our prices for UK trademarks are fairly low. However, your case will be handled by an attorney which is a bit different. In other words, you will get a premium service. Moreover, the cost of a UK trademark is much lower than the cost of a European trademark (EU TM). Hence, if you have business in the United Kingdom, e.g. if you need an amazon brand registry, then a UK trademark registration is ideal. On the other side, if you have business in the EU, you should consider an EU trademark additionally.
