A reminder for our clients that use the ATO Business Portal:
‘myGovID’ and ‘RAM’ will replace ‘AUSkey’ and ‘Manage ABN Connections’ at the end of March 2020.
We recommend creating a myGovID sooner, rather than later, in order to fully familiarise yourself by the time AUSkey retires.
Not to be confused with your myGov account, myGovID is a secure way to prove who you are online.
It’s the Australian Government’s digital identity provider. It’s like the 100 point ID check but on your smart device.
Relationship authorisation manager (or RAM) is an authorisation service. You can link your Australian business number (ABN) to your myGovID using RAM and manage relationships and authorisations across government online services.
This means that RAM lets you manage who can access online services on behalf of your business.
Together, myGovID and RAM give you access to government online services allowing you to continue to manage your business’ tax and super affairs, grants and payroll…to name a few.
