Smile Australian work experience verification

Hi.

I applied for a visa 885 onshore early this year after completing 1 year of work experience to get the required points.

I worked at this company for about 13 months. I quit the company and moved on to another one because after my 13th month there, a lot of people were being made redundant because the company was on shaky ground and we were not getting new clients. I didn't want to take the risk to be made redundant as well.
When I lodged for the visa 885 online I uploaded a reference from my employer (as directed by DIAC), a bunch of payslips, group certificate, contract including job description, letter of offer that was given to me when I started employment.

Now, 6 months after leaving the company, I have learnt that the company went under, and my employer decided to move back to the US with his family.
I hear that the case officers ALWAYS do the job verification whether is by phone or by physical visit...however they do the job verification, the thing is, the company is now closed...My questions are: because the company doesn't exist anymore, does that mean I will fail the job verification when it is done? or would the documents that I supplied be enough to pass the job verification?

Anyone in similar situation in regards to Australian work experience job verification?

Charlie

Companies fail all the time Charlie and by what you say you have reasonable documentation.
What you have would I imagine have reference to the Company registration and it may be in your interest to see if authorities have some documentation of the company closing up shop here.
Why not see what you can get hold of and get that on your application file too.
