Is your business ready for the decommissioning of AUSkey?

12 February 2020

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has identified that AUSkey does not meet the future needs of most Australian businesses. For this reason, from the end of March 2020 AUSkey will be replaced with new authentication and authorisation services - myGovID and Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM). These replacement services will require users to use multi-factor authentication to verify who is logging in when accessing government online services.

What you need to do

The ATO encourages all AUSkey users and principal business authorities to set up their myGovID digital identity and authorisations now. AUSkeys will not work after the end of March 2020.

The ATO has prepared a range of support materials regarding this transition. We encourage you to read the following resources and reach out to the ATO directly should you have any queries about the action you should take to be prepared before the end of March.
