Trademark Registration

Very competitive professional fee of €450 plus VAT at 23% to register a trademark* with the Irish Patents Office.

There will be outlays payable to the “Controller of Patents, Designs and Trademarks” for the sum of €247.00 (€70.00 per class in respect of initial application fee plus €177.00 in respect of registration fees)

When a trademark application (which contains the minimum information required) is received by the Patents Office, a filing date and application number is assigned and a filing receipt is issued.

The Minimum requirements for a filing date are: –

1. A request to register the Mark (completion of the prescribed application form meets this requirement);

2. The name and address of the person requesting the registration;

3. A representation of the mark – this may be a word and/or a picture/coloured (where applicable) illustration of your trademark (not to exceed 8cm x 8cm);

4. A statement or list of the goods and/or services for which registration of the mark is sought.

*This estimate covers the initial filing of the application with the Patents Office through to receiving the “Certificate of Registration” of your trademark. We would advise that the entire process (where no objections are lodged) can take up to 6/7 months.

Please note that in the event of Litigation arising in the registration of your trademark this estimate does not include litigation fees.
