Self-Service Tool for Patent Holders
Save with Self-Service renewal
By managing your company’s renewals yourself through our system, you can save significantly on typical outsourcing fees.
Make renewals in moments
Arrange payment of renewals quickly by automating the complicated processes using our online technology.
It’s easy to add your patents
From your account, just choose “Add a Patent” and fill in the required details. Automatic patent retrieval (where available) means you can add patents even more quickly and avoid errors.
Receive free, reliable email reminders whenever renewals are due. We also ask for an emergency contact number so that we can call you if we need to. We recommend this, but it’s up to you.
View your expected fees up front immediately. When you add cases, our system tells you on the spot what the official fee (in the Patent Office currency), our service charge and the total fee will be. You don’t need to figure anything out – our system does it for you. If there is insufficient information for our system to calculate the fee due, a member of our team will be in touch to let you know what else we need from you to determine renewal costs.
Future fee payments
Our system will continue with annual reminders and cost proposals annually (or however often the case renews) until the patent is no longer in force, or you tell us to stop (or we tell you that we are stopping). You can cancel our service at any time.
Pay once, in GBP, AUD, EUR or USD
Simplify your life with no international transfers. Fair exchange rates and no hidden markup added. We also take credit card so you can pay quickly, simply and confidently through WorldPay. Just tell us which currency you would like and we will invoice you in that currency.
