Cost Efficient

Reducing costs on the road to commercialization.

Using patent place can be extremely cost effective, you can save up to 46% when filing formalities. This cost saving allows universities and offices of innovation to reallocate their funding to other areas to the commercialisation process.

Our partnership with Moneycorp helps us provide our users with two cost benefits. The first is a competitive FX rate, which is updated on a daily basis. which enables our platform to provide FX features to help you make cost-effective decisions on when to file. The second is that when you transfer money for an instruction, you are transferring to an American account in US Dollars, so no unnecessary international fees are required to be paid.

*Savings are up to the percentage. Costs compared are taken from two European IP firms, when filing the relevant European Patent formalities.
