Increase in the official IP fees in Ukraine

The Ministry of Economic Development and Trade has drafted a regulation on increase in fees for filing applications for registration of intellectual property objects in Ukraine. The necessity to increase the cost of registration arose after conducting an analysis of the fees for actions related to the IP rights protection, which are established in certain countries of the world. During the analysis it was found out that said fees in other countries are much higher than those in Ukraine.

It is expected that the cost of registration of trademarks, utility models and inventions will increase in 4,3 and 2 times correspondingly. This decision is also related to the fact that the current fees were set in 2007. Notably, the project proposed by the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade assumes the availability of discounts for electronic filing of applications for registration of all intellectual property objects.

The specialists of the company "Mikhailyuk, Sorokolat and Partners" will be pleased to provide you with a full range of services for registration and protection of IP rights in the shortest time, before raising the relevant fees.
