DIBP do not give refunds.
But my Refusal Notification states the following:

"Visa Application charge

The visa application charge which has already been paid can only be refunded in limited circumstances, regardless of the application outcome."

It is only refunded in very limited circumstances. The onus was on you to check or provide details on your work experience. DIBP will not refund money because you were not eligible for the visa.

The problem with skilled visa's is that you need to gain enough points, if you incorrectly calculate these without being assessed properly then you become eligible for the visa.

Oh my hard earned $10, 000.00. If I get a refusal, does this mean my application has been closed off completely? Can I like put in a new IELTS result or include partner skills to the same application?

Unfortunately once you have a refusal that is it, the application is finalised. You can only add information as you go along. You will need to apply again.

If an applicant applies for a second time, do they need to declare the first time which they did not succeed?

Kirito - I think there's somewhere on the application that asks if you've had a visa refused and you'd respond yes and explain (e.g. didn't meet criteria, etc.)

OP - ACS followed their published criteria. You have received a positive skills assessment based on the fact that you have a diploma + 5 years relevant experience. They have therefore said you became qualified from that point forward (2013). It's then up to you to claim the reduced points in your application.

Unfortunately your existing application is now finished. If you can improve your IELTS to gain additional points or include a partner's skilled qualifications, you can only then include this in a new application.

Thank you for responding Maggie
I wish it was that easy. Saving $10,000.00 in my country is a difficult task and might take me years. Which means I will lose out on points for age as well Is the AU$5,000.00 for the entire process till the Visa is granted or is it just for the application? I mean it's a bit harsh to charge me AU$5,000.00 and say that I don't get a Visa. That much money just for processing and coming to a conclusion to say "NO"?

The fee is for the application, and it's paid regardless of whether the visa is granted or refused. Fees are not refundable except in very limited circumstances (e.g. the applicant died before a decision was made).
