INVENTOR'S PLEA; BizBureau EXPERT HELP FORYOUR BUSINESS.

Dear Biz I have an invention which I think will benefit the domestic and industrial markets. I've seen a patents agent but I could do with some practical advice on where to go.

G White, by email Biz replies PRoTECTING your idea is a good first step but you don't really need an agent.

You can go through the patent application process yourself and this would be much more cost effective for you. It costs between pounds 230 to pounds 280 to apply for a patent. Go to www.ipo.gov.uk or call 0300 300 2000.

Also, check out www.

businesslink.gov.uk for practical advice, contacts and information on grants and finance for small businesses.
