Official Fee Increase and New Fee Structure

On January 1, 2019, a new fee structure for trademark-related services entered into force in Hungary as part of a broader set of amendments introduced by Act LXVII, primarily intended to transpose the Directive (EU) 2015/2436 into national legislation.

Official fees have been lowered for services related to trademarks registered in one class only, but have increased for trademarks registered in two or more classes.

The new official fee for filing a trademark application is EUR 202 for the first class, EUR 270 for the second, EUR 371 for the third and EUR 506 for the fourth class. Each additional class over 4 classes is EUR 135.

Filing fees and renewal fees are the same. However, the new renewal fees are to be applied to trademarks with expiration dates after June 30, 2019; for trademarks expiring before that date, previous fees will be applied.

While there was previously a grace period of six months from the trademark expiration date, during which no fees were charged for late renewal, the grace period has now been abolished and the late renewal of trademarks expiring after June 30, 2019, will be subject to an official fee of EUR 101.

Additionally, while trademark renewal requests could previously be filed 12 months before the trademark’s expiration, the earliest they can now be filed is six months before they expire.
