How do I link my Business ATO profile to a new accountant or bookkeeper?

VIEW MORE Tools & Resources


If you are already linked to a tax agent or BAS agent, no action is required. These changes apply only to new connections to tax agents and BAS agents.

In a move to reduce identity fraud, the ATO has rolled out a new method to connect your business ATO tax profile with your accountant or bookkeeper.

These changes have been progressively applied and are now in force for all businesses as of 13 November 2023, with the exception of sole traders, which are excluded for now.

Tax agents and BAS agents can no longer add your business as a new client without you nominating them to act on your behalf.

Detailed instructions have been provided by the ATO here:
