skills assessment accounting

Hello! New here. I am an Accounting graduate (but non-CPA or member of any accounting association) and planning to apply for permanent residency. I am currently working in Au under 482 visa for 2 years now under Management Acctant nominated occupation. I applied for migration skills assessment, but unfortunately, accdg to CPAA, my academic subjects in Phils is not comparable to an Au degree, unless I am a CPA or passed the Board exams, so I can’t proceed to employment skills assessment. Have you experienced this? I graduated in 2004. Last 2017, CPAA provided a positive skills assessment. According to them, criteria has changed since 2019 hence, I need to take a cpa exam. Is there any way I can go around this since I am doing an accounting role for 13 years now and performing my nominated occupation here in Australia?

Hi there,

Unfortunately, I do not know much about Skills Assessments for Accountants who are not CPA members, so I am unable to answer your question. I hope other agents respond to your post

However, I just thought about asking if you have checked with the other Assessing Authorities, like IPA, CAANZ? I suspect that the they also ask you to pass some exams, but maybe check with them?

Another thing you need to check is if a Bachelor Degree in Accounting from the your university in the Phils is equivalent to a Bachelor Degree in Australia under the Australian Qualifications Framework. Do you know what I mean?

I hope this info helps you somehow even though I am not answering your questions

Hi. Thanks for this. I’ve already reached out to CAANZ and I am still waiting for their reply. According to CPAA, my degree in the Phils in equivalent to AQF Associate Degree, not Bachelor degree. Not sure how I can check the AQF level though.

From what you have posted, your problem seems to be that your degree was not assessed as comparable to an Australian degree. Completing your Boards would very likely overcome this, depending on the institution that conferred your degree. It would not overcome a lack of relevant content, taught to the Australian standard.

Another problem you might have is that immigration points are awarded only for work completed after you were fully qualified.

It might be a good idea to consult one of the registered migration agents who posts on this forum for an assessment of your possible visa strategies.

Please update your flag here .

Management Accountant is on the Medium and Long-term list, and you are on a 482 visa.
Once you worked for your sponsor over 3 years, you can apply for Permanent Residence under 186 transition entry, which needs an IELTS 6 /PTE 50 each band, age under 45 as well.
Then the Skill Assessment is not a mandatory requirement. Although the CO has the discretion to request it, it is not usual in previous 186 transition applications.
Of course, you may need a CPA registration for your professional development, which you can discuss with your board.
