Business logins - AUSkey


Only Administrator AUSkey registration is available here.

What is an AUSkey?

An AUSkey is a secure login that's set up on your computer. If you're eligible, AUSkey lets you log in to many government services including business and tax forms.

What can I do with an AUSkey?

With a compatible system or browser, an AUSkey can help you:

  • update your business name details through ASIC connect
  • lodge your Business Activity Statements (BAS) through the Business Portal
  • update your Australian Business Number (ABN) details
  • submit tax statements through 'SBR-enabled' accounting, bookkeeping or payroll desktop software.

See where you can use your AUSkey on the Australian Business Register (ABR) website.

If you want to log in from different computers, you can set up an AUSkey on a USB stick.

How do I register?

You can only register for an Administrator AUSkey here. All you need to provide is your:

  • Australian Business Number (ABN)
  • Tax file number
  • Australian telephone number
  • Email address.

Find out more about registering for an AUSkey on the ABR website.

To register a tax agent or accountant for a Standard AUSkey, you'll need to register on the Australian Business Register (ABR) website.

Additional logins

You can now choose how you want to log in to manage your government business and tax details.

You can use your AUSkey or one of the login options below:

  • Manage ABN connections
    If you have a myGov login, you can link your ABNs to your myGov account. This means you can then use your myGov account to manage your ABN details.
  • Online or 'cloud' tax software
    You can now use eligible online or 'cloud' accounting, bookkeeping or payroll software to process certain government tax forms.

Please note: the login options above are for specific tax paperwork. You'll still need to use either your AUSkey or ASIC connect login to:
