Utility model fees and payment instructions

You can find all fees in the left-hand menu.

TheThe fees are based on the Decree of the Finnish Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment on the Chargeable Services of the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH). You will find a link to the decree on the page "Legislation related to our administrative sector".

Make your payment either by bank transfer to the Finnish Patent and Registration Office’s (PRH) account or by payment card when visiting our Customer Service in person (no cash payment). You cannot pay online by credit card.
