AUSkey will be decommissioned at 11.59pm AEDT on Friday 27th March, 2020.

Below is a step by step guide on how to start using the new more secure alternative called Machine Credentials which will be available from 2019.6.0.

Step 1

Obtain myGovID

To configure APS for lodgement, you will first need to obtain myGovID which is your digital 100 point ID check.

Step 2

Obtain Machine Credentials

To obtain the replacement for AUSkey called Machine Credentials you will need to complete the following 3 steps using Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM).

  1. Link the practice with the myGovID of principal authority.
  2. Appoint machine credential administrator in RAM in order to avoid the involvment of principal authority.
  3. The administrator then needs to login into RAM and follow the "How to create a machine credential" guide.

Step 3

Configure Tax Manager

To start using Machine Credentials instead of AUSkey you will need to setup lodgement credentials in Tax Manager.
