What is a Patent Cost Calculator?

A patent cost calculator is an online tool designed to help you estimate the expenses associated with obtaining a patent. By providing a few basic details, you can get a comprehensive breakdown of the costs involved in the patent process. Zatapult’s Patent Cost Calculator stands out by offering a detailed and accurate cost estimate that includes both government and professional fees.

Our calculator covers all stages of the patent process, from filing and examination to hearings and more. Unlike many other online calculators, we include professional fees in our estimates, which can make up 70-80% of the total patent budget. This comprehensive approach ensures that you get a reliable and realistic cost estimate, helping you plan your budget effectively.

Whether you’re just starting to explore patents or are ready to file, Zatapult’s Patent Cost Calculator is a valuable tool for understanding the costs involved and budgeting for your patent application.

How can I use the Indian Patent Cost Calculator?

1. Visit the India Patent Fee Calculator webpage on Zatapult at https://www.zatapult.com/patent-fees-calculator-india/.

2. Choose the patent options applicable in your case:

  • Government fees (Patent filing & Request for examination) – You will need to choose the type of patent applicant. Depending on the applicant type, the government fee will automatically change. The government fee for individual(s) is chosen by default for both ‘patent filing’ & ‘request for examination’ actions.
  • Professional fees
    • Optional steps (Patent search & Provisional patent) – Getting a ‘patent search’ and ‘filing a provisional patent’ are steps that are not mandatory. Only if you want a search to be done by an expert or start with a provisional patent filing, these fees will be applicable. Hence, in our patent fee calculator, we have entered the cost estimate as 0. If these actions are applicable to you, you can input corresponding fees. Typically, it starts at 5,000 for patent search and from 6,000 for provisional patent filing. (See patent costs in India article for professional fees ranges charged in India)
    • Mandatory steps (Complete patent filing, Request for examination, hearing, grant) – These are mandatory steps so we have provided a default fee estimate for each one of these. You can use the slider to increase or decrease and get a more relevant cost estimate.

3. The calculator will then instantly show you the total fees payable in Indian rupees based on the options and selections made by you, including the government fee reductions applicable to certain types of patent applicants.

4. Use this information to budget for expenses related to filing your patent application till final decision.
