Prices and payment



The final price is calculated according to the actual time spent carrying out the search plus database costs and any additional services (e.g. citations, patent specifications, non-patent literature) as well as 8.1% VAT.

The final price is dependent on the search objective, the chosen databases, the search strategy, the number of found documents, the depth of analysis and the formatting and preparation of the results. We tailor these factors to your requirements.
