How To Access ATO Online Services For Business – Step By Step Guide


To access a range of our online services on behalf of a business or entity you need to use:

  • myGovIDExternal Link – an app you download to your smart device which lets you prove who you are when logging in to a range of government online services (it’s different to a myGov account).
  • Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM)External Link – an authorisation service that allows you to act on behalf of a business online when linked with your myGovID (you’ll use your myGovID to log into RAM).
