If the complex is negatively charged, then you add -ate to the end of the metal name.

ate is added to the end when the complex has an overall negative charge!

When the complex in brackets has an overall negative charge, the transition metal will end in ate, I.E. oxalate

-ate is for negatively charged complexes. Usually complexes are neutral or positively charged, so -ate is supposed to be a red flag/signifier.

if you only use ate for a negative charge, what do you use for positive and neutral charges?

If the complex is an anion/contains a negative charge, you at the -ate to the end of the transition metal
