The importance of appointing a UK AFS

Owners of UK trademarks are recommended to appoint a UK Address for Service as best practice.

  • Reduces the chance that correspondence goes missing.
  • Get notifications from UK IPO quicker.
  • Speed up the management of trademarks e.g. changing details.
  • In the event of proceedings, owners only have 1-month to obtain a UK address, allowing for postal times this leaves little time to comply.

Our service is designed for overseas IP firms and their clients looking to meet the legal UK requirements and who want the confidence that their risks in the event of service are mitigated.
