Introduction

    Hong Kong trademark renewal is required before the expiry of every 10 years term.

    The renewal application can be filed within the 6 months before expiry.

    The renewed term is also 10 years.


Fees

Our fee for Hong Kong trademark renewal before expiry is HK$4,500 for single-class registration all inclusive.

In the case of multiple-class registration, our fee is HK$4,500 for the first class and HK$2,250 for
each subsequent class of the same registration.

For break-down of the official fee and our fee, please refer to our Fee Schedule .

 
Saving by Merger of Classes

In case where the same mark of the same owner has its different classes under different registration
numbers, a saving of fee can be achieved by merging them into a single multiple-class registration.

Upon merger, each of the subsequent classes of the merged registration can then be renewed at
HK$2,250 instead of at HK$4,500.

The request for merger is HK$1,200 for any number of different classes
of the same mark and the same owner.

 

Timing

The whole process takes within 3 weeks.

The renewal request can be filed anytime within the 6 months before the expiry date. Filing and
payment receipt is available immediately at the time of filing.

The renewal publication and the official online records updating take place within 3 weeks. Thereafter,
the updated online records showing the new expiry date will be searchable free-of-charge
by anyone from anywhere through the Registry 's internet search website
http://ipsearch.ipd.gov.hk .

No new certificate will be issued or re-issued.

The new validity period of the registered trademark is 10 years from the current expiry date.

 

Late Renewal

In case of late renewal within 6 months after the expiry date, there need to be an addition of HK$1,000.

Once that 6 months is over, there is no automatic right to renew. Restoration of lapsed registration
is subject to the Registry's discretion.
