Can I Charge My Clients Back for Credit Card Processing Fees?

Objective:

  • Can Credit Card surcharges be added to Bills
  • Can I change an automatic administrative fee which is dependent on the amount Billed?

Environment:

  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:

  • N/A

Answer:

We do not have any functionality to support surcharging and cannot provide you with advice on the practice.

Credit and debit card surcharge permissions may vary by state, regulatory, or card network rules.

Local State Bars also have different regulations, contact your local Bar, a tax professional or your local government for further guidance on whether your area permits surcharges. Also review relevant rules and regulations from the relevant card brands (such as MasterCard or Visa).
