Recommendations concerning payments

In order to deal with payments swiftly and to speed up the registration process, we would like all our users to follow the advice below regarding bank transfers.

Please note that only a limited number of characters in the 'sender' and 'description' fields are transmitted by our bank. For that reason, we kindly ask you to follow the guidelines below.


Description fields

Please, fill this in as follows

  • Use the codes listed in the tables below
    e.g. EUTM instead of APPLICATION FEE FOR THE REGISTRATION OF A EUROPEAN UNION TRADE MARK

  • Remove leading zeroes in numbers and do not use spaces or dashes in fax or phone numbers, since they use up space unnecessarily

  • If the payment is for more than one trade mark or design, only specify the first and last one and then send us a fax with the full details of which trade marks or designs are concerned
    e.g. EUTM-3558961-3558969
