To know how charging works with contracts, assets, and billing.Please refer the following link 
https://help.comodo.com/topic-289-1-625-12461-Appendix-3---How-Charging-Works-in-Service-Desk.html

Steps [1]: Configure 'Default charging'

c) Charge rates appear on assets

Go to Service Desk→ Admin Panel → Manage → Assets.

Now, the asset charge set by the admin in charging page shown on the assets section.

Note:

Default charging will be auto applied to the contracts, tickets for billing calculation if custom charging has not been configured to the "contract" or "no contract" has been made to the organization.

For example, please refer to above default charging configuration. Now, assuming no contract has been made with an organization,  If the staff provided a service for ticket related router then 30$ per hour will be auto applied in the billing report.
