Australian Renewal Deadlines
A renewal fee must be paid to the Australian Patent Office each year to maintain a patent application and any subsequently granted patent in force.
For a standard patent application or standard patent, the first renewal fee is due four years from the filing date.
For an innovation patent application or innovation patent, the first renewal fee is due two years from the filing date.
Late Renewal Payments
It is possible to renew a patent or patent application in Australia within 6 months of the renewal deadline. However, monthly late fees will become payable.
If the patent or patent application is not renewed within the 6-month "grace" period, the patent or patent application will cease/lapse.
