With government agencies pushing toward a paperless environment it is becoming increasing important to get connected online so you can interact with these agencies. As an example the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) announced it will no longer issue PAPER Business Activity Statements (BAS) where the completed BAS' are being lodged electronically. This move is only set to expand and will see a majority of communications handled online in the future.
Registering for an AUSkey allows you to access and send business information to the government online. It simplifies the way you deal with the government from lodging your BAS' to updating your business name details with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). It gives you the ease and convenience of online access to help your business deal with the government in a more efficient way.
Alternatively if you have a myGOV account, you will be able to link your business account to this provided your details are recorded on the Australian Business Register (ABR) for this business.
