Official Fees Increased

On September 11, 2013, the Venezuelan Patent and Trademark Office informed the general public about the enforceability of a new tax rate based on the Special Act for the Fiscal Stamp in the Capital District, published on May 2nd, 2012.
This new rate of 10 tax units is equivalent to Venezuelan Bolivars (BsF) 1,112.80; or US$ 177.19, as per the Official Currency Exchange rate.

Accordingly, the Venezuelan Patent and Trademark Office will apply this new rate for:
1) The filing of new trademarks, trade names and slogans, and;
2) The filing of new applications for patents of invention, utility models, industrial designs and improvements thereof.
