Charities urged to make the move over to myGovID
Monday, 16th March 2020 at 5:31 pm

Charities will need to swap to the new system by the end of the month    

NFPs that use the Australian Tax Office’s Business Portal are being urged to say goodbye to their AUSkey login and set up a myGovID as soon as possible. 

With the ATO and 26 other government agencies set to retire the decade old AUSkey and Manage ABN Connections logins on 27 March, NFPs must set up and use myGovID in order to access the ATO’s Business Portal and a range of other government online services.   

myGovID proves the identity of an individual prior to granting them access to use government online services on behalf of an NFP organisation. 

The majority of users have now transitioned to myGovID, with over 13,000 new

enrolments per day. 

The myGovID smartphone app can also be downloaded by NFPs and linked to the organisation.

Get started in a few simple steps: 

Step 1: Set up your myGovID. Download the myGovID app from the App Store or Google Play and use your Australian identity documents to enrol.

Step 2: Log in to RAM using your myGovID and link your organisation. Before you link your organisation, check your details on the Australian Business

Register are up to date so RAM can use the correct information.

Step 3 (optional): Authorise others to act on behalf of your organisation online in RAM. They will receive an email to accept the authorisation request using their myGovID.

 

Set up your myGovID here.
