Default How to cover time spent on Startup for ACS

Hi All

I am in a situation that could put my ACS score in trouble.

I have been working as an independent contractor and freelancer for last 7 years, work through my own limited company and pay myself salary and dividends.

During thr period oct' 16 to Dec' 17 i worked on my own project, still same sol (software engineer) but during this period i was not working for any clients. Though my limited company kept paying me salary and dividends from the profits it earned in past. I was technically still employed.

Mow for ACS self employed work, they need letter from client which in case was my own limited company hence infact myself.

Dec17 we realized this project was not taking off as expected and hence had to park it and start working as normal (since then)

Can you please share your experiences/insights into how should I proceed to male ACS believe that I was still working.

Thanks in advance
Regards
M.

If you do not claim points for experience for this period ?
Does this reduce your points ?

Cheers

Thanks for replying NB.

If I do not claim points I would be pushed to a lower band.

Convincing ACS is not the end of your troubles but just the start
They will be convinced with a minimal set of documents

The problem may come when you apply for pr after invite during which the co will scrutinise your claim 10 times more thoroughly then what ACS has done

Are you prepared to risk your visa fees and maybe even a possible ban from applying?

It would be better to consult a Mara agent before taking a decision

Cheers

Oh Gosh, why would they ban me, just push me a band below

I am not forging any stuff here, are authorities too easily convinced to put a ban?

And tbh I thought if you have ACS authorities wont scrutinize your application as it has been once, if they have to do it why force candidates to go through an extra step of getting evaluated and waste money on a 3rd party.

How the co will view your application, is for him to decide
Whether he will just reject your application or also impose a ban , no one can predict

One should hope for the best but be prepared for the worst

In the assessment order issued by ACS, they clearly mention that the final call will be taken by DHA

Cheers

Am sure the answer is no, but if i proceed with a MARA approved agent, am I safe from being rejected/banned if MARA guy approves my application?

What is benefit of consulting MARA agent?

If you consult a Mara agent, he has a benefit of hindsight
He may have handled cases similar to yours in the past so he can guide you on the risks involved

The final call will anyway be taken by DHA irrespective of what a Mara agent may say, but the chances of an adverse decision are lower if you have followed a reputed Mara agent advice

In complicated cases, consulting a Mara agent is generally money well spent
