CIPO Fee Payment Form
The Fee Payment Form is to be used for all fee payments submitted to CIPO by mail, facsimile or hand-delivery. The form will help CIPO streamline the routing of paper requests and the processing of related fee payments. Of importance to CIPO's clients, the form will increase the security of their financial information, as information submitted in the form will not be included in the file relating to an application and will not be made available for public inspection.
For faster processing, you may continue to pay certain fees online using CIPO's electronic filing systems, as these systems also ensure the security of your financial information.
Note: If sending the Fee Payment Form and covering correspondence by facsimile, please do not resubmit the form with any hard copies you mail to us. This could result in a duplicate payment.
Before completing the form, please consult the two Practice Notices below relating to the processing of fee payments sent by mail, facsimile or hand-delivery:
- Fee Payment Practice of the Canadian Intellectual Property Office
- Fee Payment: General Authorization to Charge a Deficiency
The Fee Payment Form must only be used to provide financial information concerning the fee payment method as well as other information that will assist CIPO's Finance and Administration Directorate in correctly processing your payment. Any substantive information, such as information concerning the purpose for which the fee is paid or information concerning the prosecution of an application, must be submitted in a separate document (such as covering correspondence). Information submitted in this form is not considered to form part of the substantive file relating to an application or any other procedure. CIPO does not make this information available for public inspection.
