Not-for-profits using the ATO’s Business Portal for the first time will need a myGovID

April 27th, 2020

The ATO is reminding not-for-profits and businesses that are using the ATO’s Business Portal for the first time that they will need a myGovID.

Through the Business Portal you can apply for government assistance programs, lodge activity statements and pay super guarantee through the Small Business Superannuation Clearing House (SBSCH).

myGovID is an app you download to your smart device to prove who you are online. All not-for-profits that use the ATO’s Business Portal will need a myGovID, which is different to a myGov account.

After downloading the app and setting up your myGovID, you need to link your myGovID to your organisation by using the authorisation service Relationship Authorisation Manger (RAM). Together, myGovID and RAM provide a flexible, easy and secure way to access the ATO’s Business Portal.
