Your brand, your product name, your slogan, logo, even the shape of a perfume bottle or a stripe on a shoe!

A Trade Mark should be Non-descriptive

Apple for a shop selling apples would not really work but it does with electronic products.

A Trade Mark needs to be distinctive

“Great holidays” might sound like a good idea as it explains your services but it does not allow customers to distinguish your brand.

You need to choose classes

There are 45 different classes of goods & services, official fees depend on the number of classes you pick up for your registration; think at least 5 years in advance, you cannot add anything to the application once filed.

Is your Trade Mark available?

The worst idea is to pick a name that is already registered or being used by another business in the same field of business (class).
