Client-to-Agent Linking

Businesses owners that operate using an ABN (excluding sole traders) will need to nominate a Tax or BAS agent using the digital id (myGovID) when engaging a new agent or re-engaging the services of a previous agent. Existing client/agent relationships won’t need to undertake this process, only new client/agent relationships are required to follow this process.

The process of client/agent linking allows business owners to give authorization to their Tax & BAS agents and is mandatory from 13th November 2023. The myGovID tool is a secure way to verify identity when using the ATO’s Online Services for Business (OSfB). This new system ensures clients have control over which agents can act on their behalf.
