May I pay a team directly or do I have to pay the individual licensees?

Brokers may only pay licensees, whether individuals or entities. So, if agents in your firm form a team with a business entity salesperson license from the Real Estate Board, the broker may pay the entity directly, and the team can disburse the funds according to their team agreement. There is no requirement for the broker to pay the team directly, however, and brokers can also continue to pay the team members individually.
