GINTASSET Intellectual Property Law Firm - New official rates for industrial property fees from 21 March 2009 GINTASSET

New official rates for industrial property fees from 21 March 2009
From 21 March 2009 new official rates for industrial property fees will be applied. According to Circular No. 22/2009/TT-BTC issued by Vietnam Ministry of Finance  the new rates will be increased by around 20% and fees will be applied to some of the works that have not been applied before, for example: 

- In opposition proceeding against the grant of a trademark application: VND 300.000 (USD 17.65). For the information, this fee is not applied before the effective date of this Circular.

- In granting registration certificate: the fees will be calculated based on the number of classes (to the trademark applications); number of variants (to industrial design applications), and number of independent claims (to patent applications).  

FYI, registration fees have been calculated per application (but not on the number of Classes/variants/independent claims) before the effective date of this Circular
