Each agent of a licensee which sells any New York instruments or New York traveler's checks issued by such licensee shall, and each licensee shall so require each of its agents which sells any New York instruments or New York traveler's checks issued by such licensee to report such sale and remit the face amount of New York instruments and New York traveler's checks to such licensee within such period of time as the licensee requires within the normal course of its business or as the superintendent, by rule or regulation, may prescribe.

Remittance by such agent to such licensee or deposit by such agent in such account or its equivalent of funds in advance of the sale of such New York instruments and New York traveler's checks, in an amount not less than the amount said agent would normally receive from such sales of New York instruments and New York traveler's checks, shall be deemed compliance with the provisions of this section.
