On 27 March, the ATO and 26 other agencies are retiring the AUSkey and Manage ABN Connections login credentials. This means anyone accessing the ATO’s Business Portal or a range of other government online services will need to start using myGovID.
Once the app is set up, the business owner will need to link their myGovID to their business using the authorisation service called Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM) and authorise employee access.
The ATO is urging people to set up now before AUSkey retires. The ATO’s chief digital officer John Dardo says most people will find myGovID solves a lot of problems they had with AUSkey.
“We’ve had over five million logins to the ATO Portals using myGovID so far and that’s because it’s simple, secure and flexible,” Mr Dardo said.
“We’re encouraging ATO Business Portal users to make the move from AUSkey to myGovID now before AUSkey retires.
“Don’t leave it to the last minute, get set up today.”
Download the myGovID app and link it to your business using RAM today. Visit ato.gov.au/mygovid for more information.
