Getting ready for Jobkeeper payments and using the Business portal
If you’re an eligible business applying for Jobkeeper payments, you will have the option to apply yourself through the Business Portal, or using your tax professional. If you need help please get in touch with us.
Accessing the Business Portal To access the Business Portal and apply yourself for the jobkeeper, you need to set up your myGovID and link it to your business in Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM).
myGovID is an app you download to your smart device to prove who you are online. It’s like the 100 point ID check, but on your smart device. It’s different to a myGov account.
RAM is an authorisation service that allows you to act on behalf of an entity with participating government online services.
Together, myGovID and RAM provide a flexible, easy and secure way to access our Business Portal.
What you need to do 1. Download the myGovID app to your smart device and set it up using your identity documents. Anyone who accesses ATO online services on behalf of your entity will need their own myGovID.
2. Log in to RAM (access RAM by visiting https://info.authorisationmanager.gov.au) using your myGovID and link your entity’s ABN. The way you link depends on whether you’re an eligible individual associate or a primary person.
3. Once your ABN is linked, you can start setting up and managing authorisations. When you authorise someone they’ll receive an authorisation request via email to act on behalf of your entity online.
