Patents forms and fees

Our patents forms are available in both PDF and Microsoft® Word versions.

If you wish to complete the form by word processor, we recommend that you use the locked Word version as this version has full functionality but prevents accidental editing of the text of the form. The unlocked Word version allows the text of the form to be altered but does not have full tick box functionality.
