ATO Online Services for Agents (The New Portal)

ATO Open Beta Testing to a Wider Audience

The ATO’s new digital service has been undergoing beta testing since 12 December 2017 but has largely been kept private to a group of approximately 100 tax and BAS agents so far. ABN and a number of its members have participated in early Beta testing & the service was previewed at ABN's Bookkeeper Event in October 18.

As an extension of its initial Beta Testing the Tax Office is currently seeking wider participation and many of you will receive an invitation to participate.

We urge you to participate as the Tax Office will use all feedback received to continuously refine the system for the benefit of all users. Your testing & feedback will ensure we end up with the best possible outcome. 

The new service boasts a range of changes Including:

  • Improved navigation
  • Clearer visibility
  • Better client maintenance 
  • Easier to view Super details

For a more complete list of improvements and terminology please click here.

The new service includes a range of support material to get you comfortable with its features including a (?) icon embedded within the system for page specific help.

Please note, the old portal continues to be available, but the Beta alternative is live and can be used to transact with the ATO.
