Guide

You can register your trade mark with the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) online or by post.

Before you apply for registration, you should:

Apply for a UK trade mark

To complete your application for trade mark registration, you will need to provide the IPO with:

  • your name and address details
  • details of what you want to register (eg a word, illustration or slogan)
  • the classes you want to register your trade mark in - see how to classify trade marks

You will also need an email address and a credit or debit card to pay for the fees.

Trade mark application fees vary according to the examination option you choose when you apply - this can be either the standard or the Right Start application service.

Fees are non-refundable and don't guarantee registration of your trade mark.
