The grace period for trademark renewal is typically six months long. However, we would advise setting up reminders to renew your trademark in time to avoid additional fees and potential complications. For example, in the UK, a late renewal can only be submitted via post and not online.

You can start the renewal process from 6 to 12 months before your trademark expires, depending on the country. If you want to outsource your trademark renewal, you can check the list of countries we cover.
