Czech IPO Introduces Changes Concerning Official Fee Payment
The Czech Industrial Property Office has introduced an important change concerning the payment of official fees for industrial property matters. Namely, as of January 2011, the date on which the amount is actually entered in the Czech IPO’s bank account is considered as the date on which a payment is made.
Previously the date of deposit was considered the date on which a payment was made.
These changes are the result of recent amendments to the Czech legislation concerning taxes in general.
According to the Czech IPO, this notice concerns the official fees that must be paid on time, such as the annuity fees, fees for substantial examination, printing fees and fees for filing the opposition and appeal.
