Unregistered trademarks are considered as illegal, and such companies do not pay taxes and do not maintain accounting records, therefore they do not have the right to conduct activities within the African republic.

Registration of trademark in Tanzania requires comprehensive and professional approach. Even if you have a lawyer in the personnel of your company, he will not accomplish this task, since he does not have the proper experience.

Specialists of Law&Trust carry out such deals on a regular basis, so it's worth entrusting to us. We have detailed knowledge of the jurisdiction of Tanzania and know all the nuances that may arise during registration of the trademark in Tanzania.

Stages of registering a brand name in Tanzania:

1. First of all, it is necessary to verify your trademark for compliance with the norms of the country. Regardless of its image (song, picture, graph, 3D-image or otherwise, provided by law), it should not mislead potential consumers, should not include immoral details and insult the feelings of any of the groups of people. The verification can be carried out by our expert in accordance with the regulations of Tanzania.

2. Next, it is necessary to complete the application and collect the documentation package. We provide clients with application forms, and after that we undertake the duty of requesting and obtaining all the documents indicated in the list. The list is constantly changing, and in order to accurately compile it, information concerning your company, its good standing, the number of employees and miscellaneous factors are needed. You can provide the above information by sending a scanned form with data to our mail. Registration of trademark in Tanzania is also possible for individuals.
3. Further our work consists in preparation of the documentation for forwarding. There are two languages in Tanzania: basic language is Swahili, secondary is English. Forms in all other languages are not considered by the representatives of the expert commission. We provide qualitative legal translation, and immediately after the interpretation of the document it is certified and acquires full legal force.
4. There is the stage of consideration of the application, documents and the logo itself by the expert commission of Tanzania after sending. It takes about one year.
5. Obtaining trademark and establishment of business in the African country.

All the details about each stage, as well as information regarding prices can be clarified by calling us. For the convenience of the clients, online chat and e-mail are available.
