Q&A on Trademark Registration Costs and Fees

Is the “survey fee” free as many times as I want?

Yes, it’s free as many times as you want until you get a good result.
Therefore, it is very appreciated by repeat customers.


iRify International Patent Office examines in detail all 30 examination items examined by examiners of the Japan Patent Office and reports the results of its investigation. This avoids the risk of filing a trademark that is unlikely to be registered.

What is a “division”?

Classifications are those that the JPO categorizes goods and services (services), and there are a total of 45 classifications.


Class 1~Class 34 is related to goods, and Class 35~Class 45 is classification related to services (services). The cost (fee) increases or decreases depending on the number of classes. In other words, if the goods or services for which you wish to acquire rights span multiple categories, you will need to pay for the number of products. 

iRify International Patent Office has the most common applications in one category, followed by two categories. If you do not know the number of categories, please feel free to contact us.

What is the “stamp fee”?

The “stamp fee” is the cost to be paid to the JPO.
The stamp fee is always required even if you apply on your own without requesting a patent office.

To put it simply, the stamp fee at the time of filing is the fee paid to have the trademark applied for examined. On the other hand, please consider the stamp fee at the time of registration as a fee to be paid to maintain trademark rights (rights).

Stamp fee at the time of application “12,000 + 8,600 × (number of classes – 1)
” yen.
1 category 12,000 yen 2 category 20,600 yen 3 category 29,200 yen 4 category 37,800 yen 5 category 46,400 yen

Stamp fee at the time of registration You can choose from 5-year registration or 10-year registration.

In the case of 5-year registration, it will be “16,400 × number of classes” yen.
1 category 16,400 yen 2 category 32,800 yen 3 category 49,200 yen 4 category 65,600 yen 5 category 82,000 yen

In the case of 10-year registration, it will be “28,200 × number of categories” yen.

1 division: 28,200 yen 2 divisions: 56,400 yen 3 divisions: 84,600 yen 4 divisions: 112,800 yen 5 divisions: 141,000 yen

Please tell me when to pay the cost.

Payment of the fee is divided into two parts: at the time of application and at the time of registration. Please pay the fee at the time of filing the application after the rigorous trademark search (preliminary search) and before actually filing the trademark registration application with the JPO of the Japan.
The cost at the time of registration is required when the examination by the examiner of the JPO is completed and the trademark registration is successfully approved.

Please pay after receiving a notice from iRify International Patent Office that you have received a Trademark Registration Decision. If the trademark registration is not granted, no costs will be incurred at the time of registration. In this case, the “success fee” deposited at the time of application will be refunded in full.

If I respond to a notice of reasons for refusal (notice of refusal to register a trademark), will I incur additional costs?

If you can respond easily, there is no additional cost (free of charge).
In most cases of iRify International Patent Office, we can handle it free of charge.
On the other hand, if the response requires advanced judgment and it takes time to prepare documents to overturn the reason for refusal, the cost will be charged accordingly.

This cost varies depending on the content of the notice of reasons for refusal, so we will explain it carefully in advance. Please be assured that iRify International Patent Office will not respond to the notice of reasons for refusal without your instruction and charge you a fee.

If you do not respond to the notice of reasons for refusal (abandon the trademark registration) after listening to the explanation from the dedicated person in charge of iRify International Patent Office, we will refund the full success fee.
Since iRify International Patent Office conducts a strict trademark search (preliminary search), it is rare to receive a “notice of reasons for refusal” in the first place.

If the trademark registration is not approved, I am worried that they will not refund the success fee with a reason.

We value the trust we have with our customers. Trademark rights are rights that can be held permanently by paying a renewal fee, so we would like to build a relationship that will last for many years. Therefore, if the trademark registration is not approved, the success fee is refunded smoothly. In addition, there is no need to create a special document or submit it in the document.


In addition, if the customer wishes to file an application for a trademark with an extremely low possibility of registration with the risk of such risk, we may represent the trademark registration application with a claim-type service each time, rather than a contingency fee type service. We will explain carefully to customers who wish.
