*The fees included in these results are an estimation of the minimum official fees charged by the national IP office, from the filing stage to the final registration stage. Additional official costs and taxes may apply on a case-by-case basis. These costs do not include professional agent fees nor any additional fees (disbursements) which could be charged either by the IP Office or by the IP agent. Furthermore, please note that all costs expressed are in € and the currency exchange rates from local currency were calculated at a specific date / time (currency exchange rates are subject to variations notably during economic crisis). No responsibility, nor any liability action should be brought against the Helpdesk on the basis of the information provided in this tool.

**This timeline is estimated for a smooth registration process (a smooth process would mean no Office Action issued by the IP office, nor any opposition or claim filed by a third party). In addition, the length of the registration process may take longer depending on the complexity of the application and due to extraordinary events (sanitary crisis for example).
