A trademark protects a "brand" or "sign" used to identify your goods/services to consumers and clients. Are you considering bringing a unique product or service to market that requires some form of branding? Or do you want to protect your existing brand?
A trade mark is the legal enforceable way to protect:
Registering a trademark helps you protect your brand so that your competitors are unable to use it. Trademarks are registered under one or more of the 45 'classes' of goods/services. In most cases companies choose to register their mark under more than one class.
One of the misconceptions are that businesses registering a business name, a company name, or a domain name gives you the exclusive right to that name. It does not. Only a trademark gives you the exclusive right and provides legal protection for your brand.
Our fees are fixed
A single trademark registration in one class:
These fees include all government charges and professional charges, and are per class. If you choose to register the same trademark for more than one class, there is no additional competitor search and the preparation.
Fees for additional classes for the same trademark are:
2. Preparation and filing of application: $540.00 + GST
3. Registration (once approved): $540.00 + GST (not due for at least 6 months)
Once the trademark is registered you renew your trademark in 10 years time.
