KiwiSaver Trade Marks

Inland Revenue is the owner of trade mark registrations for the word "KiwiSaver" and the KiwiSaver logo. We need to ensure the KiwiSaver trade marks are used appropriately in the marketplace and that this use is authorised. This helps to ensure the public are not confused, misled or deceived and maintains the integrity of KiwiSaver.

We may grant a non-exclusive licence to KiwiSaver scheme providers to use the KiwiSaver trade marks in New Zealand in connection with their involvement with KiwiSaver. There is a licence agreement included as part of the Scheme Provider Agreement for use with KiwiSaver scheme providers.

The KiwiSaver Trade Mark Requirements set out requirements relating to the use of the KiwiSaver trade marks. The requirements cover the use of the word "KiwiSaver", the use of the KiwiSaver logo and its correct format, colour and typeface. It also has some specific requirements regarding the distribution of KiwiSaver schemes
