Are Russian official fees reduced in case the applicant is a small entity?
Russian legal entities included by the Tax Authority into the Unified Register of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (based on the number of employees and income criteria) are subject to reduced official fees with respect to patents and designs. The reduction is quite significant (in average, the reduced fees are around three times less than the regular fees). There are no reduced fees with respect to trademarks.
Foreign entities cannot be included into said register.
