Increased Quarterly Fee Calculation
Amendments codified in 28 U.S.C. § 1930(a)(6)(B) to the calculation of chapter 11 quarterly fees increase the fee payable for a calendar quarter in which quarterly disbursements in a case equal or exceed $1 million to the lesser of one percent (1%) of disbursements or $250,000. This change in calculation applies in any chapter 11 case filed on or after October 1, 2018 and does not have retroactive application to pending cases.
