Renew your trade mark

Trade marks must be renewed every 10 years.

You can renew a trade mark in the 6 months before it expires and up to 6 months afterwards.

You cannot renew online if your trade mark expired more than 6 months ago. You might still be able to restore your trade mark by post.


It costs £200 for the first class of goods or services your trade mark is in, and £50 for each extra class.

You can reduce the number of classes at the time you renew.

You also have to pay a late renewal fee if you’re applying in the 6 months after your trade mark’s expiry date. The fee is £50.

Avoid fraudulent payment requests

You may receive invoices from fraudulent companies for trade mark, design and patent services. Do not pay them.
