Annuities

Renewal fees in Mongolia are payable at intervals of several years for certain fixed block periods calculated from the local filing date, as follows:

 

1.      1st - 3rd  years

2.      4th - 6th years

3.      7th - 10th years

4.      11th - 15th years

5.      16th - 20th years

 

The fee for each block period must be paid in advance.  The fee for the first three years falls due within 6 months from the grant date, and this fee is normally paid along with the grant fee.  The fees for the subsequent periods must be paid during the six months prior to the commencement of those periods.  A six-month period of grace is available for late payment of renewal fees, with a 100% surcharge.
