Say goodbye to AUSkey and hello to your new key to the Australian Taxation Office’s (ATO) Business Portal.

What are the changes?

AUSkey and Manage ABN Connections will retire in March 2020. After this date you will no longer be able to access government online services using an AUSkey. You will need to:

  • set up myGovID - the Australian Government's digital identity provider and a new way to prove your identity online
  • link it to Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM) - an authorisation service that allows you to link your myGovID to an Australian business number (ABN) and manage who can act on behalf of your business online

The ATO are rolling out these new services gradually and eligible businesses can use them now to access the Business Portal and Access Manager.
