Val's FS2 Intercept Guide!
25th September 2015
From 30 September 2015 Intellectual Property Office (IPO) customers filing fee bearing paper forms and paying by credit or debit card will need to make payments using the IPO’s online payment provider Barclaycard SmartPay.
This new service is to ensure that the IPO is complying with the PCI (Payment Card Industry) standards when handling credit and debit card payments.
New editions of the fee sheets FS2, FS3 and FS4 will have details and links to the new payment service and also any web pages containing fee payment information.
Paper form users will need to:
- complete the IPO form(s) and appropriate fee sheet (FS2, FS3 or FS4)
- make payment online (if paying by credit or debit card)
- make a note of the payment reference in the box provided on the new fee sheet
- send the form(s) and fee sheet to the IPO
New editions of the revised fees sheets FS2, FS3 and FS4 will be available in FormEvo prior to 30 September deadline.
