The Government of the Republic of Indonesia is set to increase the official fees for several services carried out by the Directorate General of Intellectual Property of Indonesia. The draft fees – which were only announced on August 15, 2017 – are expected to be in force before the end of this year. The “ever-increasing operational cost” is believed to be the main driver for the increase.
Notable increases and additions include the Indonesia – Japan PPH request, recordal of license agreement, recordal of name and/or address change, annuity maintenance basic and claim fees, and additional claims during filing.
It is worth mentioning that the official fees for filing will not be impacted since they have just been overhauled in November 2016.
