On 25 March 2020, the Australian Taxation Office (“ATO”) set the final countdown for AUSkey transition (Link).
From today, 27 March 2020 11:59 AEDT, one will only be able to use the new services – myGovID, Relationship Authorization Manager and machine credentials (“M2M”) – to interact with Australian government online services through SBR-enable software.
Updated support and guidance material to help with these services can be found on ATO’s website (Link).
In addition, on 25 February 2020, Frequently Asked Questions about myGovID, the M2M solution, Relationship Authorization Manager (RAM) and moving from AUSkey, have been made available for users to help make the transition (Link).
One can subscribe to receive e-mail alerts from the ATO when new information regarding CRS and the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”) reporting are released, by e-mailing email@example.com.
