Utility model fees and payment instructions

The menu on the left contains our price lists for the following (on small screens you will find the menu at the top of the page):

Our 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 in Finnish and Swedish on the page "Legislation related to our administrative sector".

Make your payment

If you order certificates or register extracts, you make the payment against an invoice sent by us. When ordering a priority document, companies can select the payment service as the payment method instead of paying the priority document fee by invoice.

You can pay the fees into any of the accounts below.

New applications

Fees related to new applications can be paid:

  • when filing the application, or
  • you can wait for us to send you a payment reminder with the reference number needed for the payment.

In the first case, you can inform us about the payment by sending us a copy of the payment receipt, or by filling in the message field of your bank payment with the text “New utility model application" and the name of the applicant given in the application.

Details of renewal fees due for payment

The utility model owner is responsible for paying the renewal fees on time.
To see the reference number and other details of renewal fees due for payment within six months, access our Patent Information Service and search by the application number or the registration number.

Payment from outside Finland

If you make a payment to the PRH’s account from a non-Finnish bank account, you must also pay any handling fees charged by your bank. It is crucial that you pay the correct sum of money to our account by the due date.

We do not send payment reminders abroad.

If companies outside Finland use the PRH payment service and deposit account, they will avoid the handling fees and ensure that their payments arrive at the PRH quickly. Read more about the deposit account.
