If renewal fees are not paid, the registration of a design, plant variety, or trade mark will expire. As for patents, which last for a term of 20 years, the registration will lapse if renewal fees are not paid when required.

Save for plant varieties, the registration can potentially be renewed if late renewal fees are paid within the stipulated time frame.
