Like anything in life, if you don’t do something every day, there’s a greater chance you’re likely to get it wrong than having someone that does.
A business has the greatest chance of success when it obtains expert advise from experienced advisors whether that’s financial, legal, IT/software, marketing, branding etc.
Also, it’s probably not your highest and best use of time. E.g. I get my accountant to do our reconciliation and tax returns because I’m likely to get them wrong or not know all the relevant, up-to-date information.
We advise Australian businesses everyday about their trade marks both here and internationally.
The difficulty with trade marks is that you’re not allowed to substantially amend the trade mark (unless you narrow the scope) after you’ve filed it, so if you muck it up, you basically have to do the whole thing again and start from scratch and pay all the fees again – and leaving the business exposed in the meantime!
It’s not that expensive for the protection it provides, and at least you know that the mark you register is going to give you the protection you need, or as much as you can afford.
A registered trade mark will give you protection for 10 years so is great value for money and peace of mind that you’re protected.
We’re practical when it comes to financial matters and can work with you to obtain the protection you need with payments in stages if you need extra time to assist your cash flow.
