Payment of patent annuities in the GCC Patent Office should be paid at the beginning of each year during the first three (3) months until 31 March of each year regardless of the filing date or priority date.
Late payment, however, is allowed for a period of 3 months (i.e. until 30 June) and will be subject to a 100% penalty fine.
The above applies to pending applications as well as granted patents.
