Making payments

Fee payments, which must be in euro, can be made to the EPO:

  • by payment/transfer to a bank account of the European Patent Organisation, quoting, as payment reference for the bank, the patent application number and fee codes to which the payment relates,
  • via a deposit account held with the EPO.
