Is it necessary to make a payment to keep an application in force?

In Peru it is required to pay annual fees to maintain a patent application or granted patent in force, the annuity must be paid one year in advance. We remind you that the cost of annual fees may vary according to a table compiled by the Peruvian Trademark Office (INDECOPI). We recommend paying annuities promptly to avoid the additional payment within the grace period or worse risk that the patent application be considered abandoned.
