Australian trademark registration

Registering your brand as a trademark is a critical step to protecting your rights both on the Internet and in the "offline" world.

Registered trademark attorneys

Sublime IP has in-house registered trademark attorney services and provides a guided Australian trademark registration helping to ensure your mark is registered in the appropriate Australian trademark classes. We can undertake registration of your service or product trademarks, whether they comprise words, images, a mix of both, or an exotic mark like a shape or scent.

Trademark registration costs

Our Australian trademark lodgment fee is AUD$395*. Additional fees are payable to the Australian Government, which we can re-bill for you at cost including offering a wider range of payment methods such as payments by Euro, U.S. Dollars, Pounds Sterling, Yen etc as well as convenient methods for Australians to pay such as BPAY, direct credit and all popular Australian credit card types (Visa, Mastercard, American Express).

The Government filing fee for Australian trademarks is AUD$160* per class of goods or services.

If your trademark is approved for registration, a further Government fee is payable of AUD$300* per class of goods or services is payable to complete the registration. Registration then lasts for 10 years.

Trademark applicants should note that the trademark filing service fees are payable whether or not the trademark application is ultimately approved. It is possible for a trademark to be rejected on various grounds such as being overly generic or deceptively similar to an existing trademark. In such circumstances, no refund of application or filing fees is available.
