Digital Information for Franchise Owners

Here at the ATO we have been working on improving our digital services for small businesses, knowing it can make things easier for you.

One of the biggest changes coming is the retirement of AUSkey on 27 March 2020. The new myGovID and Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM) are available now, and will replace AUSkey and Manage ABN Connections.

Many in business are familiar with AUSkey – it has been the way to access our Business Portal for the last ten years! But changes and improvements in technology means it’s time for AUSkey to retire. I want to reassure franchisees that the changes are simple, and an improvement on AUSkey, so I’ve pulled together some information about the changes and links to the websites – but remember, if you need to speak with us, you can always give us a call on 13 28 66.

More information is available at Accessing online services with myGovID and RAM  to help you make the change.

I downloaded the myGovID app and went online and I got a fact sheet. Basically I read through it and I just had some step by step how to set up the app and how to link my business to find my ABN and link it in and then you know, eventually go through and give my bookkeeper access. It was pretty easy. It was just a few steps. – Frank, Café owner.
