Filing your patent application

Once you have a draft application, the process of filing it with the the UKIPO can be daunting. XPatent will submit your application for you online, requesting the UKIPO’s official search. Fixed price quotes for handling all filing formalities and bureaucracy avoid unexpected charges and expenses.
