    Hey everyone,

    I'm interested in getting a Registered Trademark ® against my business name, and having had a look on the official // www.gov.uk // website; i'm immediately confused to say the least!

    I've tried to google the difference between a Standard and Right Start application but I just can't seem to get the exact answer and clarification of which one is for me?

    If you take a look here;

    https://www.gov.uk/how-to-register-a-trade-mark/apply

    You'll see in large "How much it costs"
    and a little further down the page it has "Type of Application / Fees / Each Additional Cost"

    My question is.. what is the difference? (aside from the cost)

    Thanks in advance!

    In order to register a trademark you basically you start with a search for existing marks, and there are legal firms that specialize in that. To simplify the process, you can use https://bonamark.com/ service. Makes the process pretty intuitive.

    When you apply for a passport you can pay an additional fee for the bloke in the Post Office to check you have filled in the paperwork correctly.

    Right Start is the same service for trade marks. It ensures you are not applying for something they won't give e.g. generic three letter combinations without a logo; something someone else already has; that it doesn't include protected words (there are more of those than you might think); and that you apply in the right classes for your business.
