Trademark Holders and Agents who register for a Prepayment Account (Detailed Fee structure) instead of using their credit card (see: Basic Fee structure) automatically receive discounts as they earn Status Points.
Status Points are earned by either registering or renewing trademarks. Multi-year registrations earn you more Status Points than a single-year registration:
- Each 1-year Trademark registration: 1 point
- Each 3-year Trademark registration: 4 points
- Each 5-year Trademark registration: 7 points
We will use a real-time Status Counter to track the number of Status Points earned. The Status Points determine how much you will pay for a registration at that point in time. The discounts given are incremental, meaning you first pass through the lower levels before attaining the highest discount level.
0 to 1,000
1,001 to 15,000
15,001 to 40,000
40,001 to 90,000
The Status Counter will automatically reset to zero at the end of each Registration Period.
For more information on the Status Points; please refer to the Detailed Fee Structure.
