Trade marks

Register a trade mark in the UK

You can register your trade mark with the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) online or by post.

Before you apply for registration, you should:

To complete your application for trade mark registration, you will need to provide the IPO with:

  • your full name and address
  • country of incorporation
  • a good representation of the logo or design
  • indication of goods and services sold, or to be sold, under the trade mark

You will also need an email address and a credit or debit card to pay for the fees.

Trade mark application fees vary according to the examination option you choose when you apply - this can be either the standard or the Right Start application service. Fees are non-refundable and don't guarantee registration of your trade mark.
