Trademark Fees to Be Lowered in April, 2016

The office fees for trademark registrations and renewals are nearly JPY 10,000 lower, if those fees are paid on or after April 1, 2016.

We recommend paying those fees on or after April 1, 2016 in both domestic and International Applications, if the due date is met. The due date for paying the registration fee is extendible for 30 days in Japan. If the application designates more than one class, we recommend extending the due date and paying the registration fee in April.

We will individually inform you of an applicable fee reduction for your trademark application we represent.

For the details, please refer to the below table. Please let us know if you need more information.

Registration fee for 10 years 37,600 28,200 9,400
