Pricing – NZ Trade Marks

Not Sure?

NZ trade mark search 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 trade mark is likely to be. You may wish to conduct some preliminary searches yourself using the IPONZ website.


NZ trade mark application (bundled with AU application)  If you apply for a NZ and Australian trade mark at the same time, we give you a 33% discount on our NZ application fees. The price above does not include the Australian application fees.  Choose this option by completing the Australian trade mark application, then selecting the NZ check box.

NZ trade mark application A stand alone NZ application. If you’re completely set on your name or logo, or have done your own searches, then a search might not be helpful – because you want to proceed anyway. In that case, it’s better to just apply for your NZ trade mark and wait for the response from the IPONZ.

Notes on pricing

Examination Every NZ trademark is examined by the IPONZ to ensure it meets the requirements for registrability in New Zealand. If there are any issues raised by the IPONZ during the examination of your application, we will forward the report with our preliminary comments (for free).

NZ trade mark registration fees All going well, and your trade mark passes government examination, there will then be our registration flat fee of $280 due in around 4 months.

*Classes When applying for a NZ trade mark you need 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 NZ$150 per class and our professional fee of $190 (or $127 if bundled).  However, to save our client’s fees, we draft precise and lean 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.
