Removal of cheques as payment option for PCT International

1 July 2015

The New Zealand PCT Receiving Office (IPONZ) will not accept cheques as a payment method for PCT International applications from 1 July 2015.

IPONZ now requires direct credit payments for PCT International applications.

When a PCT International application has been filed, the client will receive an email with a summary of the fees due. The email will include the MBIE PCT Trust Account direct credit details which PCT International application fees will need to be paid into.
