An admin fee is a fee charged by the agency to the client for the responsibility of running and managing the work done for the client. The aim with the %Above is to provide a way to display an additional fee like an admin fee, for line items listed on the CE. This can be used to calculate the the overall agency fee charged to the client on every CE.
Not all clients use this feature, but those who do, have a particular reason for it, either defined in their agreements with a client or internal methodology. The use of this feature is to calculate a %value for the line items above, either to the top line of all the Work types or up to the last %above line used, on a CE.
Should you want to learn how to create an admin fee, please see Adding an Admin fee Work type. Ask your Chase Administrator to help you create a new Work type if you don't have the Users rights to do so.
Below are steps to show you how to include a standard admin fee per CE.
- Open the CE to which you want to add an admin fee.
- Click the Add Lines button.
A new line will appear at the bottom of the Work type.
- Click the drop down arrow on the new Work Type field, and select Admin Fee on Internal Items, or type Admin Fee on Internal Items inside the field.
Notice that the Admin Fee on Internal Items is added and it calculates all items that are above.
Drag the Admin Fee on Internal items Work type and drop it on top of the Print Work type.
Notice that when you move this Work type the value changes to only calculate all line items above.
There is another admin fee Admin Fee on External Items that is used to charge the client for the external items on the CE. This is added in the same way as the Admin Fee on Internal Items you just added.
Notice that the Admin Fee on External items is added and it calculates based on the % assigned to all items that are above it (or up until the nearest %Above line item).
