Patent Renewals (Annuities) in Turkey (FAQs and Fee Schedule) (2024)

Updated: Jan 31

What is the protection term of a patent in Turkey (Türkiye)?

In Turkey, patents are protected for 20 years. This period begins on the date of application. However, for the protection to continue throughout 20 years, a renewal fee (i.e., annuity, annual fee, maintenance fee) must be paid annually to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office. The annuities need to be paid not only for registered patents but also for pending applications.


When is the due date for patent annuities in Turkey?

In Turkey, annuities for a patent (or a patent application) are paid in advance for the third year and each subsequent year. The due date of the annuity for the third year is the second anniversary (corresponding month and day) of the application date. The due dates of the subsequent years are also based on the anniversary of the patent application. As the annuities are updated each year, these fees should be paid after the updated fees of the relevant year are published in the fee tariff in the Official Gazette.


Is there a grace period for the payment of patent annuities in Turkey?

Yes. Within an additional period of 6 months after the due date of an annuity, it is possible to pay the relevant annuity by paying a higher fee to the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office.


What is your quote for the payment of patent annuities in Turkey?
