Fee payment

The fee amount that you must pay for services that are subject to the annual adjustment will depend on the date on which the fee is received by the Registrar, not the date on which the service was originally requested.

For example, if you file an application for the registration of a trademark but a filing date cannot be granted because the prescribed fee was not paid, the amount you need to pay will depend on the date on which the Registrar receives the payment of the entire prescribed fee. If the payment is received after January 1, you will need to pay the adjusted prescribed fee for the new year. Similarly, the amount required for any additional Nice classes also depends on the date on which the payment is received, even if the prescribed fee for the first class of goods or services to which the application relates was paid prior to the annual adjustment. If the payment is received after January 1, you will need to pay the adjusted prescribed fee for the new year.
