  • New to the Business Portal? Set up myGovID first…

    05 May 2020

    Before using the Business Portal for the first time, you need to set up your access using myGovID and Relationship Authorisation Manger (RAM).

    You can use the Business Portal to apply for the JobKeeper payment, lodge activity statements and access the Small Business Superannuation Clearing House.

    To set up your access:

    1. Download the myGovID app from the App Store or Google Play. You need to add two of the following Australian identity documents and your name must match exactly in both documents:  
      • driver’s licence or learner’s permit
      • passport
      • birth certificate
      • Medicare card.
    2. Log into the RAM website using your myGovID and follow the prompts to 'link your business'.
    3. (optional) In RAM, authorise your employees and others to act on behalf of your business online. They'll receive an email to accept the authorisation request using their myGovID.

    Once you've completed these steps, you can log into the Business Portal using your myGovID. A four digit code will appear on the Business Portal login screen of your browser for you to enter in the myGovID app. The myGovID app is only used for the log in step.

    Remember, registered tax agents and BAS agents can help you with your tax
