De-facto income issue??

I am english and my girlfriend is australian, we have been together for 2 half years, and living back in the uk for almost 2 years years .
we are about to apply for our de-facto visa here in the uk, we have quite a bit of evidence of living together, rental agrements, council tax bills etc.., around 6 stat decs from both family and friends in both countries, numerous photos together in different countries, ihave done my medicals and police checks also...but i am slightly confused about the part of my sponser (girlfriend) having to show evidence of being able to support me in australia for the first 2 years, as we are here in the U.K working?
She obviously cannot show employment records of work in australia as we have been back in the U.k for almost 2 years...We are hoping to start a business from when we arrive through our current employer here in the U.K who has a succesful internet based business, also one of our australian friends who have filled a stat dec, have offered my girlfriend full time work, when we get back to Aus...
sorry for the long description any help would be much appreciated.

If you both have a sound employment record back in the UK it may not be a significant issue and especially if you have employment options to consider on arrival.
I would certainly get detailed the offer of employment to your partner and also the potential business as separate statements to include with her sponsor and your applications.
They may for grant of a visa require her as a sponsor to provide an Assurer of Support, something either a family or friend can do but she may also not be requested for that.
