It takes a minimum of 7.5 months from the date you file an application to secure full registration in Australia.
The cost to register varies. The biggest factor in determining the cost is the type of products and/or services your trademark is used to identify. All goods/service fall into 'classes' and fees apply per class you require. See our fees page for more information.

There are a number of benefits to owning a registered trademark, including:

  • Have the right to use and control the use of your 'trademark' – without registration, you don't necessarily have these rights (and- own it forever);
  • Stop others from using the same/confusingly similar name in your industry – without registration, stopping such activity can be difficult and costly;
  • Add value to your business – a trademark is a sellable asset that adds values to your business in the event you wish to sell your business
  • Look credible. Registration of trademarks allows you to use them with the ® symbol, allowing your customers to see you as professional and dependable;
  • Generate further income for yourself, even after you retire!

The registered owner has the right to use their trademark in connection with goods/services that they nominate and generally control how the trademark is used for those goods/services. This can include licensing use to others for a fee, and taking action against people found to be breaching your rights.
