What Does the Trademark Application Process Involve?

After completing a trademark search, the next step of the trademark registration process is making a trademark application with IP Australia. At this point, it is important to have a clear understanding of what class of goods and services your mark should be registered. Upon submitting a trademark application, it becomes difficult to make changes or extend the application of goods and services of your trademark.

As part of LegalVision’s trademark registration service, our trademark search will recommend which class of goods and services applies to your mark. You can request a trademark search here.

Trademark Application Methods

IP Australia accepts two different applications. These are known as the:

  • TM Headstart; and
  • Standard applications

Each application process has their pros and cons and accordingly, are suitable for different occasions. Making the wrong application can be a costly and timely adventure and speaking with a qualified professional is highly recommended. LegalVision’s qualified trademark lawyers will be able to advise you on which application method is most appropriate for your business needs.
