Post Visa 175 - accountants - qualification recognition

Hi,

I am a part qualified accountant with 3 years experience. I’m in Australia on a working holiday visa since September 09. I am currently working in Brisbane as a financial analyst.

I studied accountancy with the ACCA and I did my last three professional exams here in Australia. Two in December 09 and 1 in June 10. ACCA is recognised as an accounting body here in Australia.

The first part of my qualification exams (11 out of 14 total) was completed in Ireland.

Q1
I want to apply for a visa 175 as a skilled migrant. Do I still need CPA to ‘recognise’ my qualification, even though I sat some exams in Australia?

Q2
Please note that I am still part qualified because the results of my last exam will not be published until August 10. If I passed the last exam I will be declared full-qualified by the end of August 2010. My intention is to start an application for a visa 175 as soon as I am fully qualified. From what I understand, my application should be pretty straightforward and likely to be approved through the Critical Skills List. Are you aware any problems/issues I am not taking into account? Will the lack of ‘post-qualification’ experience affect my application?

I really appreciate your answers.

Mark

The existing SOL still has far as I know, three different accounting organisations that can do assessments, CPA being just one and membership of CPA involves post graduate study.

There is a list of occupations out for new SOL, stated by Immi to be effective from July01 and though there has been no publishment of the new SOL as yet, I'd see no reason why the same bodies will not again be listed as assessing bodies.

The CSL is revoked and no longer exists and for a 175 application, having at least 12 months experience in the past 24 prior to application date is mandatory [ and it will be experience post graduation ].

If you and your current employer have mutual satisfaction, you may want to consider an employer sponsorship temporary residency visa 457 , that having the possibility of leading to a PR visa application after two years.
Applying now should just about see one approved before the WHV expires.

Meanwhile, you do know I imagine that you're restricted to six months with the one employer on a WHV.
