Official Fees Will Be Changed in 2020


IPONZ informs that the Trade Marks Amendment Regulations 2019 will come into force on February 13, 2020, and will amend the Trade Marks Regulations 2003 (the principal regulations) by altering fees payable to the Commissioner of Trade Marks.

Fees for requests for preliminary advice as to whether a trademark has a distinctive character, or for search advice as to whether an identical or a similar mark is already on the trademarks register, will be altered. The request for preliminary advice only, per class, will increase from NZD 40 to NZD 50. The request for search advice only, per class, will increase from NZD 40 to NZD 50. The request for preliminary advice and search advice, per class, will decrease from NZD 80 to NZD 50.

Fees for applications to register trademarks or renew trademark registrations are decreased. The new official fee for filing a trademark application will decrease from NZD 150 to NZD 50 per class, if the relevant preliminary advice and relevant search advice were both provided and the application is not for the addition of a class of goods or services to an existing application..
