The ATO are preparing to retire the traditional Auskey Identity Authenticator. The changes come in line with the governments move towards MyGov and storing all of your personal information online, linking tax, super, medicare and centrelink in one centralised location.
Your My Gov ID will now be your tool to identify yourself and logon to services such as the Business Portal. It’s important to start
the process of setting up your MyGovID before the changes come in to effect so that you can continue accessing these online services.
Other staff in your business will not be able to see your personal details attached to the MyGov ID it will simply become your new profile
to be linked to any necessary business accounts.
For further information or to start setting up your MyGov ID please access https://www.mygovid.gov.au/.
Once you have a MyGov ID you will then need to link it to your business or businesses in order to continue accessing their information. The
new service for this is called Authorisation Manager. Once your MyGov ID is successfully setup, head to this link and follow the
instructions to successfully link yourself and others to your business. https://info.authorisationmanager.gov.au/
The ATO have stated that Auskey and Access Manager will be retired at the end of March 2020, it’s a great time at the start of the
year to get yourself setup before the system becomes clogged with many others attempting to create their MyGov ID right before the March
As always your CSM is here to help with the transition, we would encourage you to read the website links and contact the ATO if you encounter technical issues as there will more than likely be some issues to be ironed out by the ATO in the coming months.
