Change of trademark owner's name, domicile or registered office

Notify the PRH immediately if your name, domicile or registered office changes. We will update the changes in your name, domicile or registered office for the trademarks you refer to in the application. In addition, we will automatically also update the changes for your other registered trademarks and pending matters related to trademarks. This is to make sure that the details in the Trademark Register are correct and up to date.

Finnish trademark owners

Your application to record the changes must include the following details:

  • registration number of the trademark
  • your new company name, domicile or registered office, and address if they have changed.

You do not need to submit a Trade Register extract if your company name is Finnish.

Foreign trademark owners

Your application to record the changes must include the following details and documents:

  • registration number of the trademark,
  • your new company name, domicile or registered office, and
  • copy of a document providing proof of the change of name, domicile or registered office, for example a copy of a Trade Register extract or of another official document (such as a certificate given by a notary public).

Use our ‘Application concerning a registered trademark’ (available in Finnish and in Swedish) to submit the changes. Go to the page with the application form.

Filing changes to the owner's name, domicile or registered office is free of charge.
