What are the renewal official fees for various patents in Taiwan ?
What are regulations on grace period and surtax ?
Answer:
The renewal official fees for various patents in Taiwan are determined by the Taiwan Intellectual Property Office (TIPO). These fees are paid to the government and are based on the fee schedule provided by TIPO. Please refer to the following website link for more information: https://patent.evershinecpa.com/patent-renewal-fees

The annual fee can be paid for one year at a time or several years at a time.
Patents can be renewed up to 6 months before the due date.
The annual fee can still be legally paid within 6 months after the due date, but there is a surcharge fee of 20%-100%.
If the payment is not made within 6 months after the due date, the patent will be expired.
