  • AUSkey replacement coming

    New authentication and authorisation services, myGovID and Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM), provide a quick, easy and secure way for you to prove who you are when you access selected government online services.

    • myGovID is a secure proof of identity app. Set it up once and use it to prove who you are when accessing government online services – just like the 100 point ID check, but on your phone. Use your myGovID for both personal and business matters.
    • RAM is 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.

    Together, myGovID and RAM will replace AUSkey in March 2020.

    To support the transition from AUSkey to the new digital identity solution, RAM is now connected to Access Manager. This means when you authorise a person to act for a business using RAM, you can set their permissions for ATO online services in Access Manager at the same time.

    Eligible businesses have already opted to switch to myGovID and RAM to access the Business Portal.

    We will continue to make more enhancements to myGovID and RAM, including:

    • a streamlined way to connect large numbers of Access Manager permissions to RAM
    • expanding the myGovID app to Android devices.

    AUSkey will continue to be supported while you make the move to myGovID and RAM.

    What you can do to prepare for the change:

    We will let you know about further developments with myGovID and RAM in future Business bulletins.
