The costs of a trademark
The costs for a Benelux trademark are EUR 695,- ex VAT for a trademark registration in no more than 3 product categories. The costs for a European trademark are EUR 1500,- ex. VAT for a trademark registration in 1 product category. We discuss the number of classes needed with you and draft a proposal for the product categories.
When there are no technical aspects to an idea, it is often useful to register the name as a trademark so third parties cannot market the same idea under the same name. To attain a trademark right, we will have to file a trademark application. First and foremost it is important to decide where the trademark application should be filed. Many of our customers choose to start with protecting in the European Union.
