When you have paid the application fee PRV can start examining your application. The same goes for applications for recordals in trademark registrations.
The fee covers the examining cost
The application fee is not refundable if your application is cancelled or refused. The fee covers the cost of the examination of your application.
Online application or paper application form
When you apply for a trademark registration through PRV’s online application you pay the fee directly via a credit or debit card.
A paper application form is paid via bankgiro. PRV will not send you an invoice.
In some cases, the application fee may be lower, for example if you apply through our online application instead of the paper form. However, if the online application contains non-validated goods and services the fee will be the same as if you apply with a paper form.
Payment via bankgiro
Make the payment for your paper application form to bankgiro 5052-6797.
The following information is recommended that you state when you pay via bankgiro:
- that the payment is regarding a trademark application
- what type of application it is (renewal, transfer or the like)
- the name of the applicant (not the name of any representative)
- the applicant’s address
- the application or registration number. If you do not know the number you can enter the text in the trademark.
Keep in mind that you may have limited space for commentary when you pay through the internet.
PRV has changed the banking account for public fees. If you are in another country than Sweden this means that any payments from January 1, 2018 and onward should be made to a new account. See details below:
