New Zealand Trademark Registration Costs

NZ Trademark Search


Best option if you’re just starting out. We tell you how easy or difficult registration of your trademark will be in the New Zealand before you pay larger fees… READ MORE

This will determine whether there are any prior NZ trade marks that may be too similar to yours and prevent easy registration. We will provide you with a report that outlines how easy or difficult your trademark is likely to be. You may wish to conduct some preliminary searches yourself using the IPONZ website. However, we recommend the use of a trademark attorney to conduct these searches.

Every trade mark is examined by the country goverment to ensure it meets the requirements for registering a trade mark.  If there are any issues raised during government examination of your application, we will forward the report with our advice (for free) and, if any substantial action is required, a fixed fee quote for you to approve.

NZ Trademark Application


+ NZ$100 govt fees

A stand-alone NZ trademark.  We recommend searching first, but if you’re already using or are set on your trade mark, you may consider applying for your trademark without a search… READ MORE

If you’re firmly set on your name or logo or have done your own searches, then a search might not be helpful as you want to proceed anyway and so proceeding directly to your NZ trademark application may be better.

All going well, and your trademark passes government examination, there will then be our registration flat fee of $280 due in around 4 months.
✓ Drafted by a registered trademark attorney
✓ Filed in 3-7 days
✓ Address for service
✓ Classification of your goods/service
When applying for a trade mark you are required to nominate which goods or services you want your trade mark to cover. There are 45 official classes of goods and services, with a government fee of US$325 per class and our professional fee of AU$190 for every class after the first. However, to save our client’s fees, we draft precise trade mark applications usually covering one or two classes. We indicate your main trade mark class, and if we think other classes could be important to you, we let you decide if you want to proceed in those extra classes.
