ENS Visa -Chartered secretary ok?

Recommended Posts

Guest vivien

Hi this is 1 of 4 posts regarding a visa for my parents to join me in Australia. There seems to be lots of options but none of which fit very well!

One really good option would be to get an ENS visa for a corporate accountant (on the ENSOL list). However, although Dad has worked as this for years he doesn't have a degree and is a chartered company secretary rather than a chartered accountant. Has anyone any idea if this would be sufficient or had any dealings with the accountant bodies in Australia.

Thanks, any help is really appreciated.

Hi vivien

I won't pretend to know much about visas but I can direct you to a professinal body for chartered secretaries which may help if your father was to contact them and ask whether they have any advice for him about migration.

The link is:

Chartered Secretaries Australia Ltd | Home

Hope this helps

Cheers and good luck

Hi Vivien

 

Your best bet would be to consult Alan Collett of Go Matilda, I reckon:

 

Go Matilda - Your Gateway to Australia - Contact and Feedback

 

Company Secretary is here:

 

Company Secretary 1212-11 - Australian Skills Recognition Information

 

The more detailed, authoritative ASCO Code description is here:

 

1220.0 - Australian Standard Classification of Occupations (ASCO) Second Edition, 1997

 

The structure of ASCO is here:

 

1220.0 - Australian Standard Classification of Occupations (ASCO) Second Edition, 1997

 

ASCO is describing someone seriously senior who will almost certainly be a main board director of a major company. If this is what Dad is then it is possible that if a major Aussie company should want him, no doubt something could be arranged for Dad visa wise.

 

Somebody who can command the sort of salary which this very senior level of employment would involve would not need a skills assessment in order to qualifiy for an ENS visa:

 

Employer Nomination Scheme (Subclass 121/856)

 

The requirement is for one of the three options, not all 3.

 

So if we really are discussing this sort of seniority the only remaining issue would be obtaining an exemption from the usual age limit:

 

Employer Nomination Scheme (Subclass 121/856)

 

The reason why Dad should speak with Alan if Dad is this senior is because regardless of which visa Dad eventually ends up on, very careful arrangements would need to be made in order to ensure that his move to Australia is handled tax-efficiently, which is Alan's particular specialist niche in the "migration market." Because Alan is a Chartered Accountant, his advice comes without the benefit of the usual devices which the various "Independent Financial Advisors" insist on trying to foist onto the client. (You should have seen the speed at which one of them came running to suggest an annuity for my elderly mother when we were planning her move to Australia. I sent him packing in the opposite direction as fast as he had appeared from it, bluntly.)

 

Best wishes

 

Gill
