Comparison of Annuity Fees

The reduced administrative effort when paying annuities for a single Unitary Patent is only one of the numerous advantages of the new Unitary Patent system. However, as not every member state of the EPC falls under the Unitary Patent system, we recommend evaluating both the financial and administrative benefits of obtaining a Unitary Patent carefully. With Meissner Bolte‘s “Annuity Fee Comparator” you can easily compare the annuity fees of the new Unitary Patent (and additional national patents as desired) with pursuing instead the bundle of national parts of a granted European patent.
