Costs and time-scale for Registering a Design
Normally for UK and Community design applications, there are no further costs, and the application will proceed to registration within one to three months. However, sometimes, objections are encountered, which would then incur extra costs.
Clearly, this is not a full schedule of our costs, but it will give you an idea of at least the initial costs involved in applying for a Registered Design.
