False invoices

If you use our services, the only legitimate invoices you will receive in relation to your trade mark application are those which come from us.

Other organisations are known to issue invoices relating to trade mark services, when they are not actually part of the official process. These operators obtain information from official publications in trade mark journals and registers. Such invoices should not be paid.
