Charging a fee for late payment

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If someone has to pay you money after a certain period of time and he doesn’t pay, is it allowed to charge him with administration fees or any other fees?

Bismillaah

A: This is not permissible. It is pure riba (interest) and interest is haraam.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
