How long before I have to renew my trademark?
A trademark registration lasts 10 years. The registration can be continuously renewed so long as you maintain uninterrupted use of the mark in interstate commerce. We will keep track of your trademark and inform you when to renew your trademark.
Once a trademark is registered, it is valid for 10 years from the date of application which can be renewed for the next 10 years by paying the renewal fee.
You may renew your trademark registration by filing the renewal form “TM19” online via IP2SG. The date of renewal application filing will determine the fee you will be charged. The fee will generally fall into the following categories:
- Renewal of registration (made on or 6 months before the date of expiry): SGD $380 x number of classes
- Late renewal of registration (made within 6 months from the date of expiry): SGD $560 x number of classes
- Restoration of registration (made between 6 to 12 months from the date of expiry): SGD $610 x number of classes
Prior to the expiry, you will receive a letter of “First and Only Notice” from the registry that notifies you of the date your trademark registration is going to end. The letter will be sent 1 to 6 months before the trademark expires. You can file a renewal application using the Form “TM19” in the following timeframe that will incur different application fee.
- Renewal application made on or within 6 months of expiry
- Renewal made within 6 months of expiry
- Renewal made between 6 to 12 months of expiry
A Trademark registration comes into effect from the date it was filed which is valid for the next 10 years. Trademarks in Singapore can be renewed indefinitely by paying the renewal fee at the end of each 10 year period.
If a renewal application is not made within the required timeframe, the mark will be removed under the Section 19 of Trade Mark Act.
