AUSkey explained

AUSkey is a secure login that identifies you when you use participating government online services on behalf of a business.

AUSkey allows you to access and send business information to government online. It simplifies the way you can interact with government – from changing your Australian business number (ABN) details, to lodging your business activity statement (BAS).

AUSkey reduces the number of usernames and passwords you need. It gives you the ease and convenience of online access to help your business deal with government in a more efficient way.

There are two types of AUSkey available – an Administrator or Standard AUSkey.

Obtaining an AUSkey is free – find out if you are eligible.

Alternatively, you can use Manage ABN Connections and access government online services using your myGov login details.

AUSkey replacement

We’re delivering a new, secure proof of identity app called myGovID and an improved authorisation service called Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM).

Together, myGovID and RAM will replace AUSkey in March 2020. They are currently available in a public beta for eligible businesses to try. Only a limited number of government online services are available to access but this will increase over time.
