How to file an international application: How to calculate your fees

Types of fees

The fees payable in connection with an application for international registration comprise:

    • the basic fee;
    • a complementary fee for each Contracting Party designated; and
    • a supplementary fee for each class of goods and services in excess of three.

For certain Contracting Parties, the complementary fee is replaced by an “individual fee”.  To confirm whether or not a Contracting Party applies the individual fee and the amount of the Individual fee, check the list of Individual Fees.

For an overview of the basic, complementary, and supplementary fee amounts, see the Schedule of Fees.
