IP Australia would like to thank everyone who contributed to recent fee review. These fee changes will support IP Australia’s innovation policy to support small business and are consistent with our red-tape reduction initiatives.

With the Governor-General signing the Intellectual Property Legislation Amendment (Fee review) Regulation 2016 on 17 August 2016, we can now confirm that the fee changes will take effect from 12am AEDT, 10 October 2016.

We urge our customers to be aware of the new fee arrangements for IP Australia’s products and services.

A full version of fee changes is provided on our Official Notice page.
