Fees and payment
When you file a national patent application with us, you have to pay a filing fee. Later in the process, you have to pay a granting fee and then annual fees.
From year three, there will be additional annual fees to be paid both before and after the patent has been granted. If you later get a patent, you also pay a notice fee.
You also pay us the fees required to validate a European patent in Sweden, as well as the relevant fees for an international patent application.
You pay through our service online for electronic payment, by bank transfer or through our deposit account. We can not offer invoice.
Electronic payment online
We offer card payments (Visa, MasterCard and Eurocard) and via Internet banking (Nordea, Swedbank and SEB companies).
Our Bankgiro number is 5050-0248.
If you have an application number or a publication number, you should quote that on payment. If not, you should state the title of the invention, your name and what type of payment it concerns. You will receive a filing receipt that shows your application has been registered. Your case number (application number) is on the filing receipt, which you can give as a reference when paying.
Remember that we do not examine applications which have not been paid for.
Payments from abroad
PRV has changed bankaccount. For international customers this entails a new IBAN number as from 1st January 2018.
Payments are to be made to the following account number:
Danske Bank Sverige
103 92 Stockholm
To avoid surcharges, you must give the correct payment instructions for international payments. The recipient's (PRV's) bank must be given as a Bank Identifier Code (BIC – formerly SWIFT). Our account number must be given as an International Bank Account Number (IBAN). If you use both the BIC and the IBAN, it should guarantee a correct transfer to our bank.
The use of a PRV deposit account is a convenient way of managing all your payments; such as filing fees, annual fees, renewal fees as well as fees for your Search services. Contact PRV and request that we draw the fee from your account.
