Introduction of Annual Maintenance Fee

The Turks & Caicos Islands Trade Marks (Amendment) Rules took effect on July 29, 2011.
They require the payment of an annual maintenance fee of USD 100.00 for each trademark registration in Turks & Caicos Islands, beginning January 1, 2012. If a particular mark is registered in more than one class, the official fee of USD 100.00 covers all classes.
A one month grace period until Feburary 1st is allowed each year for late payment, failing which the trademark rights are deemed to be in abeyance and will remain in suspense unless and untill all past due fees have been paid, at which time the rights are then deemed to be fully restored.
