For the modalities of Trademarks and Commercial Names the rates that can be paid by card from June 16 will be the following:
The fees corresponding to paperwork, and those related to maintenance of inventions, will be excluded from payment by card. It should be remembered that the fees paid for procedures performed electronically have a reduction of 15%.
