A Device AUSkey identifies a business rather than a person. It is usually installed on a server. With the exception of the nominated custodian for the Device AUSkey, users do not have to obtain their own AUSkey.
For example, a Device AUSkey can suit your business if you need to lodge reports to government agencies through Standard Business Reporting (SBR)External Link-enabled software.
You should talk to your IT Administrator and SBR-enabled software provider before registering for a Device AUSkey to confirm it is suitable for your environment.
If you have an Administrator AUSkey you can register for a Device AUSkey in AUSkey Manager under Register for Device AUSkey.
