  • AUSkey Transition Working Group key messages April 2019

    Members of the Tax Practitioner Digital Implementation Group formed a new AUSkey Transition Working Group to discuss agents and practices transitioning from AUSkey to the myGovID credential and Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM) by March 2020.

    The working group will continue until March 2020 or earlier should the group agree outcomes have been achieved.

    The main topics discussed at the first meeting included:

    Current focus for the working group

    • The intent is to leverage collective expertise from tax professionals to help shape and influence the AUSkey transition strategy.
    • Provide input into the communication strategy.

    AUSkey migration

    • The group discussed how to transition all current AUSkey permissions from their current form into the new ecosystem (myGov ID and RAM).
    • The group discussed and provided feedback on the proposed migration solution as well as identifying any risks and improvements.
    • Members considered a number of key questions relating to their own practices and the transition.
    • The group considered what the ATO, digital service providers and tax professional associations need to provide tax practitioners to assist with the transition.
