PCT National Phase Cost Estimates

Initial filing estimates for national phase applications in common PCT member countries

The following initial filing estimates are representative of the bare national stage costs for a PCT application excluding annuities, requests for examinations, assignments, excess content (e.g., claims, total pages of specification), and ongoing prosecution (e.g., responding to Office Actions). Actual costs may vary due to translation fees, currency fluctuations, late filing of declarations, government fees for excess claims or pages, etc. Please contact our patent attorneys to obtain a precise, flat rate estimate for the desired national phase filings of your PCT application.
