To file for a trademark application, you can do so as a physical person (with your personal details) or as a business entity. Therefore, the information which will be publicly shared by the IP Office slightly differs.

The details that will be visible in the public trademark registry are, in the case of a natural (physical) person:

  • Address - primary (domicile) address of the applicant
  • Citizenship
  • Legal name

For a legal (business) entity, the following will be shown:

  • Business name
  • Registered address of the business
  • Name of representative
