    I need a piece of paper that says I can legally charge a late fee in the state of california. I have an anal customer that says I cant because Im not a bank. Everyone of my vendors charges me 18% apr, or 1.5 % per month. That is what I have been charging for years.

    it's set by the feds. it gets real complicated on how to figure it out....

    But 6% is about as high as you can go.

    and NO you dont need a paper saying so.

    HOWEVER, you do need it in writting as in a contract with the payers signiture.
    this will prove that they not only are informed of the late fee, but they agree to it.
