IP Australia is undertaking a fee review during the 2023-24 financial year. The aim of this review is to assess the entity’s cost recovery arrangements, in accordance with the Australian Government Charging Framework, and to ensure IP Australia’s fees are consistent, transparent and recover the costs associated with administering the IP Rights system in Australia. 

IP Australia reviews its fees every 4 years, with our last fee review having been undertaken in the 2019-20 financial year. This review will invite public comment on our current, and proposed, fee structure and associated charges, and we will engage openly with you throughout the review. 

A public consultation period is now open for submissions until Sunday 2 July 2023.  

While not every submission will result in immediate changes to fees, it may feed into a longer-term strategy on agency objectives and be included in a future fee review.
