Fees and Payment


You can find the fee structure in the fees and payments section on the website. On this page there is also a fee calculator for you to calculate a total depending on the number of designs and if you request a deferment.

For further information on fees and payments, see the Guidelines, Part A, General Rules, Section 3, Payment of Fees Costs and Charges.

You can pay registered Community design fees by bank transfers or current accounts. In addition, you can pay by credit or debit card if applying online.

Further information on fees and payments.

The registration publication fees must be paid at the same time; when filing the application.
If you make a request for deferment, the deferment fee will replace the publication fee. You must pay this fee at the end of the deferment period. If the holder requests the publication earlier, it must be paid before the end of that period.

The EUIPO will not issue a request for payment. If a receipt of payment is required, request this by email at information@euipo.europa.eu.

If a filing date has been granted, fees will not be refunded, except where the amount of fees paid by the applicant is insufficient to cover the fees for registration and publication (or deferment, as the case may be) for the design, or for at least one design of a multiple application.
