IP Lodgement Point logo

IP Lodgement Point offers a secure way to lodge your IP documents through a selected Australia Post outlet in the capital city of each state and territory. You can securely lodge your IP documents and make payments through the IP Lodgement Point.

The service is available from 9am to 5pm weekdays, where lodgements and payments relating to trade marks, designs or patents will be accepted on behalf of IP Australia.

Using IP Lodgement Point

Below are some key points to be aware of when lodging:

  • An IP Lodgement Cover Sheet must be used with all filings and payments. Cover Sheets are available at IP Lodgement Points or one can be sent out to you by calling us on 1300 651 010. This sheet needs to be completed and placed on top of the lodgement. Due to the unique barcode on this sheet, it cannot be photocopied or otherwise replicated.
  • All relevant IP forms need to be included with the lodgement. For example if lodging a trade mark application, customers will need to complete the IP Lodgement Cover Sheet (available at IP Lodgement Points or by calling IP Australia) as well as the Application to Register a Trade Mark form.
  • Australia Post will accept your lodgement "as is". You will continue to be responsible for checking that all filings are complete and correct including that the right forms have been completed, the correct documents have been attached and payments are correct.
  • If you need to make a payment with the lodgement, you are also responsible for checking the payment amount is correct. Payment requirements can be checked on the website or by calling us on 1300 651 010.
