Do I have to pay the agent?

Nothing in the rule requires you to pay an agent to verify a client’s identity. You should establish with the agent at the outset whether they will be charging for the service and if so what the charge will be. You are required to enter into a written agreement or arrangement with the agent and may wish to include information on the fee in the agreement. If you agree to pay a fee to the agent, you must comply with the requirement to meet all financial obligations in relation to your practice.
