Guatemala: cost of registering a brand name

The price for service depends on the time of the lawyer's work and the difficulties that arise in the course of work. The specialist is required to perform the following tasks:

1. Preliminary examination of the logo of trademark for compliance with the state regulations of Guatemala. In order for the emblem to be accepted and registered according to all rules, it should not include calls for extremism and offenses, include segments of immoral nature, consist of names or designations of popular figures or firms. It is forbidden to place the state symbols of the United States of America on the emblem.
2. Collection of the full register of documents starting from the applicant's passport up to the statement of the turnover of the corporation and the data on turnover from its accounting department. The collection is carried out on the basis of power of attorney which the counterparty provides to the specialist of Law&Trust along with the application form and the copy of his passport.
3. Preparation of the package of official documents for consideration by the Guatemalan expert commission, namely: translation of the forms into Spanish, verification of the forms concerning legal inconsistencies, and certification of each copy with seal and signature.

The issue is made one year after the filing of the documentation package for consideration. The validity of the permission for entrepreneurial activity is 10 years. In order to renew the permission for TM, it is necessary to pay fee and make application with check for payment to the Guatemalan representation office.
