You must renew the patent in the fourth year of application, whether or not the patent has been granted.
The patent is then renewed each year before the “due date” (the application date).
Patents can be renewed up to 3 months before the due date.
You can still legally pay the annual fee within 6 months after the due date, but you will need to pay a surcharge fee of AUD100 per month.
If the payment is not made within 6 months after the due date, the patent will be expired.
