HELP PLEASE!! 1 year wrong on employment history, EOI already submitted!!

OK hope someone can help us

 

 

Submitted EOI and WA sponsorship approved last month, got our invite to apply for the 489 state sponsored visa. Went ahead and started filling in the application and filled in the employment history just as we did on the EOI, we are claiming for 5 years experience (post qualification). We did this guessing dates before 2010 because of no documents to hand to go off.

 

 

Because we couldn't find any wage slips etc for 1st 2 years that we're claiming for (apart from a reference which includes start date in 2007 but no finish date) we contacted HMRC for employment history records, which shows we've made a slip up year 2009-2010 We've missed out another electrical company that he worked for from July 2009 - Jan 2010, we just put down the 1st company he worked for through 2007 - July 2010, from July 2010 he's worked for himself (plenty of documents to prove from July 2010). I know it seems like a big gap to get wrong but we did a bit of travelling too before he went self employed.

 

 

So the problem now being should we change the employment history on DIAC application that corresponds to the tax records that we now have and write a statement about the mistake?! We're not over claiming points because he has still worked as a qualified electrician through that period but just not at the company we put on the EOI.

 

 

sorry for the mammoth post but got the money & documents ready to submit, just don't want to fall at the last hurdle and want to be honest with DIAC.

If you lodge a visa application in the circumstances you have described, you will be refused and your vista application charge will be forfeited.

May I suggest that you take some professional advice?
