What discount options are available for filing international applications?


Checkboxes for discounted international filing fees are provided for in the "Calculate Fees" section of EFS-Web. If the international application is filed electronically without the PCT-Easy zip file, the box "International Filing Fee (first thirty pages) - Filed in paper with PCT Easy file or electronically with PCT Easy file" should be checked. If the PCT-Easy zip file is included with the electronic filing, the box "International Filing Fee (first thirty pages) - Filed Electronically without PCT Easy file" should be checked instead to obtain an even greater discount.
