It very much depends to the skill assessment body whether they required you to submit academic or general english. The minimum english shall be competance in general but if your profession requires academic english then it's compulsory to take that and with sufficient band.
Even you get a good score in general english, the skill assessment body might require to sit another academic test on this. Hopefully i'm wrong.

@timmituyi

Well, you can apply for skills assessment and then write IELTS but you must have completed IELTS before you submit a complete EOI. You need the scores to be entered while submitting an EOI.

For further info, you can refer faqs on skillselect website.

my route to be a cpa

I was a CPA in USA since 1990. I got here Nov 2011 and applied CPAAustralia. Finally they accepted my degree and my prof experience and I still am required to take 6 courses to be a CPA here. They cost $650 each or so PLUS a $250 fee for each course test. Now to have gotten as far as I have was like moving mountains. These 6 courses are not going to hurt me to take but . I'm just saying, great revenue racket for CPAAustralia. I got here on a partner Visa and that took 4 months to process and I was in the USA when they processed it. I had been here a year before that on visitor visa which ran out so back to the USA and lodged from there. Lots of paperwork but well worth it. I love it here- Townsville, eternal tropics
Hope this helps. Sharon McQuestion

@sparkle6,

If you have enough points, go ahead with EOI. PR has a lot of benefits compared to an employer sponsored visa.

With ielts of 6, you should get a suitable assessment for an accountant. Ielts 7 is only for you to apply for permanent residence (885 i think)

please correct me if I am wrong

@kenlky 885 no longer exists. For accountants to get their degree assessed need at least 7 bands in each section of IELTS and that too in academic exam.

If students get 6 bands each, they can do professional year course and use that certificate to apply for degree assessment. In that case, you won't need 7 bands each.

Although, it must be noted that 6 bands each qualifies a student for temporary residency (if that class still exists under GSM)

I think you will get a "suitable skill assessment for nominated occupation" with IELTS 6? It should say you will need 7 only if you want to apply for PR?

Therefore, with subclass 189 or subclasss 190, a certificate of skill assessmet for temporary residency is sufficient?

Since CPA or ICAA only does assessment for temp & PR visa?
