FAQ

WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED?

To file a European trademark application we do not need a Power of Attorney or authorization. However, we need the full name, address, postal code of the applicant. We also need your list of your products / services.

HOW MANY PRODUCTS DO I NEED?

It is really not about the number of goods, but to have a coverage. Above all, the goods / services must be covered that you will use in the next few years for sure. It also makes sense to take a step back a little and think in categories, not just about the current product line.

WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST PITFALLS FOR EU trademarkS ?

The biggest pitfall of them all is lack of individual character. For instance, if the trademark is descriptive, it will not function as a brand properly and will be refused by the EUIPO. In other words, if you seek a Europen trademark registration you have to come up with something new. On the other side, the second biggest pitfall is a conflicting earlier mark. Later, this could lead to the cancellation of the trademark. However, this risk can be minimized by trademark and market search.

HOW LONG IS A EUROPEAN TRADEMARK PROTECTED?

The protection lasts ten years and can be renewed again and again. We would gladly assist you in the renewal of your trademark . If you want to renew an EU trademark, you should consult us in due course. It only makes sense to renew a trademark if there is a commercial purpose of it.

The renewal process is fairly simple, however, close attention must be paid to the deadlines and formalities.

ARE THE ABOVE FEES FOR EUROPEAN trademarkS TAXED?

 These prices exclude VAT. However, official fees of the EUIPO are exempt from VAT anyways. Additionally, there is no VAT if you come from outside of the EU. For EU clients we can normally use reverse charge VAT. In conclusion you do not have to pay German VAT. We check the usage of reverse charge mechanism each time well in advance. Consequently, our electronic invoices contain the right amount of VAT which is zero % in most of the cases. However, please note that official fees are not paid back by the EUIPO in any case and that the EUIPO does not issue invoices or sales receipts.

 

ARE THESE trademark FEES FAIR and low?

As far as we know, our prices for European trademarks are really low. Especially that your case will be handled by an attorney which is different than a European trademark agent. In other words, you will get a premium service. Moreover, the cost of an EU trademark is much lower than the total cost of 27 national trademarks in the European Union. However, if you have business in the UK, Germany, etc., then a UK or German trademark registration is ideal. Generally, if you have business in specific EU countries, you should consider a national trademark.
