OHIM's paper filing fee applies to online applications with additional lists of goods and services
Adding a list of goods and services to your online application, whether as an attachment or by fax, means that our staff processes the application manually. As a result, the reduced online fee (900 EUR) cannot be applied and the paper filing fee is applied instead (1 050 EUR).
Those users inserting additional lists of goods and services will receive a notification in writing asking them to pay the paper fee (+EUR 150). The additional list of goods and services will therefore be considered as not filed until this paper fee is paid. This has particular significance for those filers who do not select or include any goods and services in their online application, as the filing date of their trade mark might change.
If payment of the paper fee (+EUR 150) is made within one month from the filing of the application, the initial filing date will be kept. If, however, this payment is made at a later date but still within the two month time limit set in the notification, the filing date will change to the day on which the full fee is paid.
OHIM strongly recommends that applicants insert their goods and services in the designated field of our online form. Not doing so will result in additional costs, as well as a deficiency that will slow down the processing of the trade mark. It could also result in a change of your application's filing date.
