How are the Fees Determined in the Patent Annual Fee Payment?
For the continuity of patent registration rights, the fee for patent renewal changes every year. Fees are lower in the first year of skate registration. Pricing details, which continue to increase every year, are published in the official gazette by the Turkish Patent Institute.
From the first year to the 20th year, fees are determined by when the patent was received. Patent protection period varies. While this period is 20 years for patents with examination, it is 7 years for patents without examination. In the utility model certificate, this period is 10 years. The patent annual fee table contains a net registration fee, additional fee, force majeure fee, and loss fee by year. Patent annual fee payment is made according to the annual fee table.
How Long Is The Duration Determined For The Patent Annual Fee Payment
No notification is required for patent annual fees. Fees must be paid in advance each year, without the need for notification. Annual fees not paid on time can be paid within 6 months with the addition of additional fees. There is no compensation for fees not paid during this additional period. The application is considered invalid. If there is a force majeure and the application is valid again due to this reason, patent annual fee payment can be made with an additional fee.
Unnecessary costs and efforts will arise if patent annual fees are not followed and payments are missed. Our company ensures that your patent registration is renewed without the need for unnecessary costs and efforts by making your patent fee follow-ups.
