Few Questions

Hello Everyone,
I am considering immigrating to Australia, and been to the immigration department website many times, but its not really easy get familiar with all their requirements.

I would really appreciate it if someone can direct me to the right way.

For the start, I believe that I should be in sub class 175 (skilled immigrant).

I filled the application without going into any assessment processes, and I got 100 points, so not sure if assessment would get me on the right track (by increasing points).

Here is my current situation:
  • I have a bachelor degree in accounting (accredited university), so I believe it would be assessed the same compared to Australian standards.
  • I speak good English (not native).
  • I am 29 years old.

Now to the confusing part:
After my graduation in 2004, I worked for a bank headquarters for 2.5 years.
In 2006 I moved to another country, and started working for my own company, so I am not working for a salary, as I am a majority owner.
I work since 2006 as a programmer, so my current occupation is not in my field of education, how can I claim experience points? Actually I am a producer of financial software, beside others.....
I am also working for American company, but remotely (projects).

Questions:
If I get IELTS, will I get points for that?
How to claim experience points while my occupation is not in the field of my education?
How to prove my work for my company, considering I was doing most of the jobs as a person not as a firm (tax benefits).

Thanks in advance.

You need to research the eligibility information a bit more via heading/links in the eligibility table Skilled – Independent (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 175) and also Booklet #6 may have more detail but essentially you have a number of issues that could prevent you from being eligible, ie.
Aside from needing qualifications assessed for a nominated occupation
. experience of 12 months in past 24 in an occupation on SOL could imply that you could need to have qualifications assessed for another occupation if using that for experience - best check via enquiry to Immi as a pre lodgement enquiry, contact details under contact heading top right of most Immi pages.
. I'd expect same will apply for specific experience.
. you'll find in the heading/links details of information required to support experience claims.
