  • Relationship Authorisation Manager

    We have released a new digital service, called Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM). This service can be used by individuals and businesses to set up and manage relationships and authorisations across government online services. This means that RAM lets you manage who can act online for your business.

    If you're a business owner you can set up your myGovID on your phone by downloading an app. myGovID will soon be available to registered tax and BAS agents.

    You can use RAM to:

    • link your business to a single digital identity (such as myGovID) and manage your authorisations in one place
    • give others authority to act on behalf of your business when interacting with government online services.

    You can now use myGovID and RAM instead of AUSkey to access the Business Portal. Together, myGovID and RAM will replace AUSkey in March 2020. Until that time AUSkey will continue to be supported by us while you move to myGovID and RAM. myGovID and RAM give you a new, simple and secure way to use government online services.

    RAM is now connected with 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.

    We're currently trialling myGovID and RAM with businesses. These new digital services will continue to be improved and refined based on users' feedback before becoming available to all Australians.

    Be one of the first to try myGovID and RAM to access the Business Portal, check if you meet the eligibility criteria.
