When you add a tax agent, a Software ID will display. You'll need this number to authorise MYOB to transmit lodgments to the ATO for the new agent.
You need to authorise MYOB for tax lodgments even if you have previously authorised MYOB for other ATO related services, such as for STP reporting using MYOB Essentials or AccountRight.
You can authorise MYOB in two ways: by phone, or online using the ATO's Access Manager. Follow the instructions below, or see the ATO's help page.
Make sure you have the agent's Software ID handy, and call the ATO on 1300 852 232.
Need to reauthorise?
If you've forgotten the Software ID that appeared when you set up your agent details, or you need to re-authorise MYOB, here's how to get your ID:
Click Settings on the left navigation bar and click ATO agent settings. Your software ID is displayed in the far right column.
