JobKeeper enrolments are now open - information on how to apply

JobKeeper - How to Apply

From 20 April 2020 you or your registered tax agent can enrol for the JobKeeper payment through the ATO Business Portal. You must do this by the end of April to claim JobKeeper payments for April.

Accessing the Business Portal
To access the Business Portal and apply yourself, you need to set up your myGovID and link it to your business in Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM).

myGovID is an app you download to your smart device to prove who you are online. It's like the 100 point ID check, but on your smart device. It’s different to a myGov account.

RAM is an authorisation service that allows you to act on behalf of an entity with participating government online services.

Together, myGovID and RAM provide a flexible, easy and secure way to access our Business Portal.

What you need to do
1. Download the myGovID app to your smart device and set it up using your identity documents. Anyone who accesses our online services on behalf of your entity will need their own myGovID.

2. Log in to RAM (access RAM by visiting using your myGovID and link your entity’s ABN. The way you link depends on whether you’re an eligible individual associate or a primary person.

3. Once your ABN is linked, you can start setting up and managing authorisations. When you authorise someone they’ll receive an authorisation request via email to act on behalf of your entity online.
