What amount should I charge if payment is not carried out within 30 days of my invoice?

If you have not specified in advance that there would be late fees, I don't think it will be possible to charge them now.
And even if you did, it is still very difficult to collect.
I've been in this situation more than once. Usually, when the client is late with payment, a few phone calls do it. You have to be polite, but firm. Yes, I know, it's annoying, and utterly unfair to you. I can only offer you my sympathy.
In a few instances, I had to write a letter. Again, "polite but firm" is the rule.
Only once I had to threaten to take the matter to court - fortunately, only to threaten, never actually do it.
