FEE SCHEDULE FOR CALENDAR QUARTERS BEGINNING

APRIL 1, 2021 THROUGH DECEMBER 31, 2025

The Bankruptcy Administration Improvement Act of 2020, Pub. L. No. 116-325, enacted on January 12, 2021, temporarily amended the calculation of chapter 11 quarterly fees for calendar quarters beginning April 1, 2021 through December 31, 2025. Under this amendment, the quarterly fee payable for a calendar quarter shall be the greater of: (1) 0.4% of disbursements or $250 for each quarter in which disbursements total less than $1,000,000, and (2) 0.8% of disbursements but not more than $250,000 for each quarter in which disbursements total at least $1,000,000. The following table displays the disbursement ranges and quarterly fees under the amended quarterly fee schedule for calendar quarters beginning April 1, 2021 through December 31, 2025.

FEE SCHEDULE FOR CALENDAR QUARTERS BEGINNING
JANUARY 1, 2018 THROUGH MARCH 31, 2021

TOTAL QUARTERLY DISBURSEMENTS QUARTERLY FEE
$0 to $14,999 $325
$15,000 to $74,999 $650
$75,000 to $149,999 $975
$150,000 to $224,999 $1,625
$225,000 to $299,999 $1,950
$300,000 to $999,999 $4,875
$1,000,000 or more 1% of quarterly disbursements or $250,000, whichever is less
Took me a while to figure out what 0.4% is.  If the disbursements are $300,000, 1% would be $3,000 so 40% of that is $1,200.  Eh?  So a pretty big reduction.
