You must link your AUSkey if you intend to use it for PTX Express or to lodge returns via SBR-enabled software. Linking is a one-off process and, where an AUSkey has the same ABN, subsequent PTX Express users for the organisation will automatically receive the following access levels in PTX Express:
- Access administrator, and
- Payment administrator
An organisation that transacts on behalf of a payroll tax customer, an intermediary, does not need an AUSkey linked. The customer will, however, need to authorise that intermediary to transact on their behalf, which is done using either their AUSkey or their username and password.
Prepare your access
Follow these instructions to begin the linking process.
- Log in to PTX Express
- Select to log in using AUSkey
- Select your AUSkey from the dropdown list and enter your AUSkey password
- You will be transferred back to PTX Express to start the linking
A user must then select whether they want to link their AUSkey or whether they want to request intermediary authorisation to transact on behalf of other organisations.
- Select the employer-only access section
For security purposes, an access administrator is required to now enter their PTX Express username and password.
Link and authorise AUSkey
Details of the organisation associated with your AUSkey will be displayed together with the organisation details associated with your customer number.
- Select to link AUSkey
Do not proceed if the organisation details do not represent the same business. If the email address is incorrect, you can update it on the AUSkey website. You will then need to restart the linking process.
- Select to exit the system or to use PTX Express
An email is sent to all access administrators in PTX Express to advise them whenever:
- An AUSkey has been linked, and
- A new AUSkey has been created
You can revoke an AUSkey link by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, requesting the AUSkey link be removed. Please note that removing the AUSkey link will delete all AUSkey users from PTX Express.
