186 Employment reference problem.

My current employer has submitted the nomination application, I need to submit mine ASAP, because my visa will expire in the middle of March.

First of all, this is my ACS skill assessment result:

Dates: 10/08 - 10/09 (1yrs 0mths)
Position: Web Application Developer
Employer: A Service, Inc
Country: TAIWAN

Dates: 11/09 - 12/11 (2yrs 2mths)
Position: Web Application Developer and Android Developer
Employer: B Information
Country: TAIWAN

Dates: 06/12 - 12/13 (1yrs 6mths)
Position: Android Software Developer
Employer: C Pty Ltd

Dates: 07/14 - 12/15 (1yrs 5mths)
Position: Android Application Developer
Employer: D Australia Pty Ltd

Now the problem is, when I worked for 3rd employer (C Pty Ltd) I was holding Working Holiday Visa. Due to the work limitation, I can only work for the same employer for up to 6 months. But the employer has 3 different ABNs. So every 6 months, we switched to different ABNs.

So here you can see the problem, I mistakenly put all together as 1 employer rather than 3.

I wonder if DIBP will check my visa status for the employer reference I stated in the skill assessment?

I am thinking some ways out:

1. Modify the C employment period as 6 months instead of 1year 6 months. Ask C Employer to sign again and I will do the assessment again. This way it is still enough for 186 visa (3 years experience). The reason I don't want to separate it into 3 x 6 months is because I think it is hard to make 3 references that look not similar. If I so do I think DIBP will consider it is dodgy even though it looks legal. And it is unlikely to get 3 different signatures.

2. Get rid of all Australia work experience and do the assessment again, because the sum of first two is enough for 3 years. However, my concern is that when I fill in form 80, under "Employment" section, should I put Australia work experience? If Yes then will DIBP doubts why I didn't add these to skill assessment? If No will DIBP find out that I didn't honestly state all employment in Australia?

Now this really bothers me.... I don't know how to get through this...please help..!!
