A management fee is a fee paid to the agency for services provided. The Manage Fee feature in Chase provides a way to charge for fees on CE line items, for example, management fees, insurance, and contingency fees. This feature works similarly to the % of Above functionality. The % of Above fee calculates a percentage of all line items above it, whereas the management fee can be calculated for selected specific line items.
