TRADE MARKS

A trade mark can help you differentiate your products and services from others. Read on to learn more about registering and managing your trade marks.

Forms & Fees

Where possible, you are strongly encouraged to file forms online via our e-services portal, IP2SG. Forms that are filed online would be processed more promptly and may possibly be cheaper than manual submissions. Acceptable modes of payment can be found here.

Alternative Filing Mode

(additional Service Bureau charges may apply) 

You may file via FormSG.

We have ceased manual submissions via post/hand/courier/facsimile since 16 June 2020.

Please provide your email address and Singapore contact number in your submission so that we can provide you with the payment instructions.

Payment shall be made via IP2SG's payment platform. You can expect to receive payment instructions via email within 3 working days after we receive your submission.

Unless otherwise stated, the form shall be treated as filed only when the form, requisite fees and all attachments (if any) are received by IPOS.
