Should QuickFile Accountant ask for these personal details?

I just paid to sign up with a QuickFile account. They have asked for these details?

Copy of passports of director
Copy of home utility bills of director
Driving License of Director
NI numbers for Director

Is this normal. I am worried about sending details to someone online I have not met that could be used to impersonate my identity.

Accountants are required to perform Anti Money Laundering checks on all their clients. Part of these checks involve verifying the identity of the person with whom they are engaged, often through various documents (e.g. passport, utility bills etc).

I understand your apprehension, I will drop you a private message to discuss further.
