China – Reduction of Official Fees for Trademark Registrations

trademarkThis is to advise that the Chinese Trademark Office announced in early October 2015 that the official fees for filing a trademark application will be reduced effective 15 October 2015.

The official fees for filing one trademark application in one class would have been CNY800 (USD126) before the effective date and will now be CNY600 (USD95) up to 10 items in the list of goods, which is a reduction of approximately USD31.

Where the list of goods exceeds 10 items the fee has gone from CNY80 to CNY60. That is around USD11 per item.
