Sole Traders, Partnerships, Trusts, & Companies:

(Please note that the principal of the business should follow these steps. Other authorised persons may follow steps 1 & 4.)

1. Download the MyGovID app to your smartphone (further details here)

– Note: MyGovID is a two-step authentication system. It is not the same as a MyGov account.

2. Use your MyGov ID to log into RAM (Relationship Authorisation Manager)

3. Once you have logged into RAM, link your business and then manage authorisations if you would like other people to access your business with their own MyGovID.

4. Once your business is linked to RAM, you and anyone else that you have authorised can login into your business’ ATO account through the Business Portal or ATO home page.
