Salam. I have a specific query regarding PR Visa 189. Appreciate if anyone can help / share his or her experience.

Query:
I am an ACCA member. I obtained my membership in July 2017, However I am working as skilled professional since November 2010 ( all verifiable).
I have heard somewhere that for immigration purpose, only post membership experience is acceptable to Aussie authorities. However after some searching, i am unable to find anything on the relevant site. appreciate if anyone can be of help.

The only work that counts for work experience points is after you are deemed skilled. My understanding is that you need to be an ACCA member before you are deemed skilled. If you are not sure I recommend that you call one of the skills assessment authorities and ask them.

rephrased with more details

Thanks for the prompt response.

I started as Institute of Chartered Accountants of Pakistan (ICAP) student in 2008 (which i couldn't complete). Following is the work experience thereafter:
-KPMG (External Audit) Nov 2010 to Jun 2014
- The Aman Foundation (Finance) Jul 2014 to Apr 2017
- Petromin Corporation (Internal Audit) Apr 2017 to present
During this time, i had started ACCA as alternate qualification, details of which are as under:
-ACCA qualification completed on Apr 2017
- ACCA membership obtained on Jul 2017
The query relates to the work experience prior to my ACCA membership (around 7 years). Will I be able to claim that time in my Immigration profile for Sub Class Visa 189 (PR)?
Regards
Rameez

Hi Jeremy

I have a query. .. I received my ACS results last week in which they considered all my experience to be relevant from Aug 2009 to date...I had submitted statutory declarations for all my experiences...however in my current company I joined recently (October 2017) and I do not want the verification to be done there as I am sure they will not be willing to vouch for me and also I do not want them to get a hint that I am planning for a PR...so I want to mark my most recent experience as not relevant in visa filing and proceed...anyways I will still have 8 years of experience for 15 points based on the previous job that can be counted until August 2017............(pls keep in mind I received positive assessment for this job as well)...I am sure my current company getting this info will get me into a trouble...I have no choice but to skip this experience in my visa...

Also, I had filed my EOI under subclass 189, ICT BA last week marking current job as relevant and have received an invite with an overall score of 80.
Please let me know what all options do I have so I don't have to show my current job experience-

a) Should I withdraw my current EOI and file a new one marking current job as non - relevant
b) Should I file a new ACS and show the current job as non-relevant
c)Any other options?

Please advise
