Business to Business (B2B) is IP Australia's high volume, electronic channel that enables you to securely lodge multiple applications and renewals in a single transaction.

It's designed for IP practitioners who handle very large volumes of IP submissions. B2B uses an automated system based on a multiple file transfer platform server that transfers batched XML requests directly to IP Australia's systems for processing and payment.

We have provided the following information to help you understand to use our B2B services:

We have recently started a large program of work which will replace the current B2B service platform with modern API-based solutions. If you are thinking about integrating with the current B2B product, be aware that it will be decommissioned in the next two to three years.
