• Accessing our digital channels

    To access our online services you will need an AUSkey.

    AUSkey is a single key that identifies you, or your nominated business representatives, when engaging online with government agencies.

    AUSkey provides access to our portals as well as a variety of other digital channels including Standard Business Reporting (SBR) enabled software.

    Accessing the portal


    The login screen is displayed when a request is made to use an ATO system that requires you to be authenticated as the holder of an AUSkey. The ATO system will require you to nominate the security credential and enter a password associated with that credential.  

    For more information, refer to Login.


    You will need to re-login when your session has expired. A session is expired when a set period of time has elapsed since you last interacted with the system without logging out.

    For more information, refer to Re-login.


    This is achieved from within the system you are logged onto. Each ATO system may have its own method of exiting. Typically there will be a link which signifies the logout or exit function

    For more information, refer to Logout.
