Accessing Online Government Services with MyGovID
13 February 2020
The authentication method to access government systems is changing for any individual or business with an ABN from the end of March 2020. The new system is called MyGovID and will be used to access online services such as the Business Portal.
Despite having until the end of March to organise this change, it is recommended this be organised as soon as possible to ensure a smooth transition. Should issues occur, this will allow you enough time to resolve before your current login method is discontinued.
If you have slightly different names across different forms of identification, please be aware this may cause you issues. There have been cases where people have to reapply for identification which can take an excessive amount of time.
Below is a link to the ATO website that has basic instructions on how to set up MyGovID.
If you have any difficulties or would like further assistance, please contact your local Boyce accountant.
