Breaking news! You may be getting a trade mark renewal refund ...
On this very day our good friends at the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM) have published Communication 2/2016 of the President of the Office of 20 January 2016. This Communication concerns the calculation of the amount of renewal fees in view of the entry into force of Regulation 2015/2424.
In practice, this means that
“Community trade marks expiring on or after 23 March 2016 will be subject to the new renewal fees indicated in points A.11 to A.19 of Annex I EUTMR, even in the event that renewal was requested and paid for before the entry into force of the this Communication” .
Those trade mark owners who are subject to those conditions but who had already paid will be refunded any excess renewal fees.
