    Crossroads

    Hi all, I am at a bit of a crossroads so to speak. After putting my Aussie dream on hold for move to Essex i am very out of the loop. I have 2 plans. One to finish my 3 ACCA exams and become chartered or two, look into becoming a primary school teacher. I have a degree in accounting and have worked in accounts since 2007 so for me this would be the favoured option. I don't think either are now particularity in demand from what I've read, particularly accountant as there are huge pools coming in from Asia. My husband and 2 children were hoping to get a visa for WA - Perth ideally. With the points having increased i think we may struggle. Any advise would be greatly received as there seems to havebeen so many changes. Best. X

    189 processing times

    Hi everyone! I'm looking to hear other people's experiences with the processing time for the 189 visa. I logged in recently and was gutted to see that it has increased from 5-8 months before Christmas, to 6-10 months now We have 75 points with my husband as the main applicant, who is an accountant. We submitted our EOI in the summer and quickly received an invitation to apply. We initially submitted our application in on the 5th September 2017 and later received an email asking us to upload our character forms and police checks. We submitted all of the required information on the 4th November 2017 (beware of the button you have to click once you've uploaded your docs, I missed it and only noticed when I logged back in later!) We have heard nothing since and the wait is agonising. We want to put our house on the market, but don't want to risk selling up without a concrete decision on our visas. Our medicals expire at the end of September and my husband has a 3 month notice period at work, so if we don't have a grant by June, it's game over for a 2018 move I have heard that sometimes grants are issued with an initial entry date that is only a few weeks away it would surely be impossible for most people to pack up and leave in that time, especially if you have property to sell... Do we take the risk and sell up without a grant??? We'd need to get the visas by June, how likely is that? Keen to hear from anyone else who is in the same boat! Tina x

    Accountant - Work experience

    Hi all, Just new to here. I got positive assessment from CPA for General Accountant (did not ask CPA to assess work experience) But I have more than 9 years working experience including 14 month in big four as an auditor. My question is will these 14 months consider as highly related to General Accountant work experience? Thanks. Neo

    Skilled Visa

    Hi, Myself and my husband are looking to move to Australia on a 189 visa, I am a qualified Accountant and he is a qualified Electrician we are both 32. Can someone please help me with the following queries : 1. Are we better applying under my Husbands trade or mine? (I was told the market is saturated with Accountants) 2. Can anyone advise of an agency who are successful - I know there are so many people claiming to be the best. Any advice at all would be a great help. Shauna
  7. Hi all, I am new to this forum and have been doing as much research as possible. I am aware that in the last invitation round no accountants were invited and it's looking grim until the new year resets in July. I have a few questions that I would be eternally grateful if somebody was able to answer as I am looking to submit my skills assessment to the CPAA by Sunday. I called a MARA agent for advice but they never called me back in time unfortunately during the day. 1) At what point does my skilled work experience begin? I am ACA-qualified, finishing my exams in November 2013, but becoming time qualified in 2014, whilst my certificate says April 2015 (after all paperwork was submitted). Would they consider all experience after exam-qualification (in November 2013), as post-qualified work experience? 2) I ACA-qualified at EY as an auditor, and left after three years to work as a Finance Analyst (then Finance Manager) in industry until now. I assume these are sufficiently close to Account (General) such that I can apply for this skill at the CPAA? 3) If I am considered as having 3 years+ experience (depending on my first question), it looks like I will have 70 points (+5 for subclass 190). Assuming I am able to lodge my EOI in April, does it seem likely that I will be able to be invited anytime soon? I am aware that sub-75 seems a no go for Accountants at the moment, I am conscious that the wait for visa processing, i.e. after invitation and application, now says 9 months. I wanted to move in January 2019, does this seem realistic? 4) Suppose I submit my subclass 189 + 190 applications, and I am waiting for my visa at the end of the year. Is it advisable to head out on a WHV if I don't want to wait too long into next year? What are the implications if my permanent visa is granted whilst I'm in Australia on a WHV? My apologies for starting a new thread. I did look for relevant information and was able to piece some together, but I am just conscious of time now as I know the quicker lodged the better. Best Regards
  8. Hi just at the start of this journey and looking for some help! I’m a qualified CA with a body that has a reciprocal agreement with the Australian equivalent but what I’m not clear on (and the department involved hasn’t been overly helpful) is whether I need a work skills assessment in addition to noting my qualifications? I’m a bit confused! I’ve got 60 points between age degree and language skills but I’ve read I need at least 70 to be on the accountant nominated occupation. Any help or experience would be appreciated!!
  9. I'm pulling together docs for my skills assessment with CAANZ. Two of my employers (combined 2 years experience) have policies in place that only allow references confirming dates, salary, job title and won't provide anything that details my role and responsibilities. I understand you can provide a statutory declaration in this case but who needs to provide one? As a further sticking point comes from the fact other employees (e.g. former line managers) won't provide such a declaration as they don't want to breach company policy either. Do I have any other options? I basically won't receive an invite to apply if I lose that 2 years of experience (as I would end up with just 65 points). Thanks.
  10. Hi. Hoping for another little bit of help! I’m applying for a skills assessment under ‘accountant’ and whilst I’ve got 6 years experience in a Finance role I also had 8 years post qualification experience with PWC after getting my CA qualification. My question is will the assessing authority look at the PWC experience as technically it’s external audit or do they look at it as general accountant experience? Just trying to understand if I can get an extra 5 point or not for 8-10 years experience. Thanks for for any help!

    Accountant on 189

    Wondered if anyone had any thoughts/experience on how long it may take to get an invite for a 189 visa as an accountant (general), code 221111. We have 75 points and lodged our EOI a few days ago. A friend submitted his 11 months ago (late january 2017)for the same occupation and same number of points and he was invited on the first round post submitting his EOI. (Very lucky!!) However from what I've looked at recently on skill select there seems to be a few months months wait on 75pointers for accountants despite the doubling of accountants being invited this year?

    CPA Accountant Assesment

    Hi everybody, I was wondering if anyone has gone through this: I want my qualification to be recognized as an accountant through CPA Australia. According to the website, the standards are the same as for an associate CPA membership. Let me quote: Since I dont have a degree with a major in Accounting I will not meet all 9 curriculum areas. However, when applying for CPA Australia membership, you can take exams to make up for the missing areas. My question is, can I become a CPA Australia member and then use this towards getting my skills recognized or will I still strike out since it wasnt part of my degree? Thanks for your help, Joanna
  14. DIBP have issued a statement saying that there will be no invites issued to accountants in the next invitation round. Seems likes it's taking them a while to sort out the mess of the last round with suspected fake EOIs going in bringing the points up to 85. So gutted as I should have got the invite last time [emoji22] Sent using Poms in Oz mobile app

    Onshore Visa Advice - 189 & 457

    Hi, I'm very new to the forum and looking for some advice on visa's. I'm currently in Australia and have been here since Mid June on a working holiday visa, but now I would like to make the switch to a PR visa if possible but I'm worried about the processing times. I am an accountant with 70 points (provided English test goes well) and will hope to lodge my EOI by November, delay as it takes 4 weeks to get a date for the Pearson English test and then another 4 weeks to get my skills assessment so I probably wouldn't be ready until then. Although I would be applying to get this visa as a single applicant it seems like the current wait time for someone with my points is somewhere between 9-12 months, purely based on this forum. But as I'm with an employer now and there is potential to get sponsored by them, would it be possible to continue with the 189 on my own even if being sponsored? As ideally I would like to be free from the hold of any employer. It may sound bizarre but I would like to sort my own PR asap so I am free to move jobs if I wish to. Does anyone know if I could continue to await my EOI if I were sponsored? As I am only allowed work for one employer a maximum of 6 months, I would need to be sponsored to stay on with my current employer beyond the 6 month period. Also if I wasn't sponsored and didn't get my EOI before June 2018 when my working holiday visa is up, is it possible to return on once my EOI is released? I know I would automatically go on to a bridging visa if I were to receive my EOI during my working holiday visa but with the current wait times for EOI, it may not be possible to remain in Oz. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Sam
  16. Hi All, My name is Pravin Pillai. I am a Bachelor's in Commerce with Accounting and Finance graduate and last year I had completed my Post graduation Diploma in Business Management. I have a work experience of around 9 years now in the Banking industry. Recently, I had applied for a skills assessment from ICAA for Accountant category of Australia Pr. However, I received a recognized but "not suitable" result since one of my subjects "Financial Accounting and Reporting" did not match the requirements. All others criteria were satisfied except this one subject. I need to know if there is a way I can get a positive result apart from appearing for this module from an Australian Institute as this will nullify my work experience. Will reassessment help in any way? If someone has gone through a similar situation, kindly help and let me know if this can be resolved. Regards, Pravin Pillai
  17. Hi guys, my name is Lana. I’m new here. Currently my husband and I and our 2 children still live in Germany. We have been considering migrating to Australia. My husband is Civil Engineer and I am an Accountant. So both occupation can be found on the SOL List. So much for the background. Now I come to my problem. I would like to have my studies recognized in Australia. However, I have spent the last 3,5 years in parental. According to my research I must have worked at least 12 months in the last 24 months in my profession. How we counted the perantal leave? Does it count as a working period? Or did I actually have to work? Another question. I have often read that you have to translate your entire curriculum to be able to submit your application? I received a diploma supplement from my university in english(9 pages). My university has told me that with my diploma supplement I can have my degree recognized internationally. Do you have experience with it? Which institute can you recommend me for accountant? IPA, CA, CPA…or...? My last question. We want to apply to subclass 189. My husband will be the main applicant. So he must also do the IELTS test. We believe that we will reach the required 60 points. However, I would like to have a buffer of at least 5 points. These 5 points we would get for me. Do I have to have my degree recognized in order to receive these points? Or is simply the fact that I did this degree in Germany? I’m looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks a lot.
  18. Hi everyone. I have today received a negative PASA (Pre-Application-Skills-Assessment) from the ICAA (Institute of Chartered Accoutants of Australia). I'm an Accountancy & Finance graduate 2:1 (BA Hons). The ICAA comfirm that my degree is assessed as comparable to the level of an Australian Bachelor degree based on AEI-NOOSR guidelines but I am not suitable for my nominated occupation as Accountant 2211-11. They say that this is because not all of the core knowledge areas have been studied in my degree or have not been covered in sufficient depth. I have been working in practice as an Accountant since graduation for the past nine years. I was hoping you might be able to advise if there is any point in me contesting this or if there would be any point in having my skills assessed by another recognised accountancy body? The news has left me totally devestated. I was confident this would be only a formality. I am part-qualified ACCA with my final three exams left to do. However, I have a little boy aged two and I didn't really want to wait for the 12 months post qualified once I have completed ACCA before going. Would it be an option for me to acquire an employer sponsored Visa now and make entry that way. Would I be automatically accepted for PR after two years? I would be sincerely grateful for your thoughts, I really would. Many thanks, Helen

  21. Hi all, I just got my IELTS results and preparing for the skills assessment to be sent out. Just wondering which occupation I should nominate. Is there any ACCA member who got positive assessment by nominating 'accountant' as occupation? I am an ACCA member and also has BSc degree from oxford brookes university. It requires 9 out of 12 core subjects to be covered including few compulsory subjects. In other words, do ACCA members manage to cover all the compulsory subjects and other required core subjects requirement for 'accountant' occupation? appreciate your expert advice Bridge

  23. ​Hi I've just found out that I can't apply for my skilled migration visa due to the fact that my skills will not be assessed because I don't have a relevant finance degree, instead I completed my ACCA exams as a mature student. I'm in Brisbane on a tourist visa but really need to start working and my only option now is obtaining sponsorship Could someone please advise what is the best way to go about doing this? Also has anyone any experience in obtaining successful sponsorship in Finance? Any help would be greatly appreciated
  24. Hi All I'm just about to get my skills assessed with CPA and wondering someone please give me some guidance; 1. I'm not sure which ANZSEO Code to pick between General Accountant and Management Accountant - what do most people go for? I'm ACCA qualified and they say to pick whichever best describes your qualification but my qualification covers both 2. Is it true that you need to have a relevant degree in order to obtain the skills assessment and then later the visa? I didn't do a degree prior to my ACCA exams and started at the beginning of the ACCA instead of doing a degree and then gaining exemptions from the first few ACCA exams Is there any one who has been in the same situation that could let me know of their experience? 3. What is the difference between 189 and 190 visa? Is it just the state sponsorship? Can I select to get state sponsored on the 189 visa and if the option is there they grant it and if not, so be it? I'm so confused with all this and I can't afford to use an agent so I want to complete all myself Any help would be greatly appreciated
