Post Is the migration agent correct?

Hi!

My brother is interested in applying for the 190 visa. However, one of the registered agents he's contacted is saying that his skills assessment won't be successful based on the following details -

1) He has an undergraduate degree in Electronic Engineering

2) He doesn't have work experience related to his undergrad degree. Instead, he worked for 9 years in the field of Information Technology Networking.

3) The agent said that my brother would have to go through ACS assessment and not Engineers Australia because his degree and work experience don't match.

4) The agent also mentioned that the ACS requires documents like government tax record, employment reference letter and payslips (he has all except the tax record).

5) Due to lack of the tax document, the ACS will reject his application since it's apparently compulsory to show this specific evidence.

Is there any truth to this? Any help/advice will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Agent is correct in suggesting assessing authority as ACS, for below reasons

Assuming, the job code is for Network Engineer, the assessment is through ACS and not EA, assuming that's the ANZSCO code your brother is applying to. Depending on his Undergraduate Degree, they will assess the skill accordingly.

See this for more details on ACS checklist for Evidence on Payment of Salary . You need two from the list of four --> https://www.acs.org.au/msa/acs-appli...checklist.html

The lack of tax records should be resolvable.

Typically you can apply to your Inland Revenue Agency for a copy of your personal tax records.

First and foremost, make a points table
Use 4 years deduction by ACS if lucky or 6 years if not
Then see if he can reach at least 90-95 points realistically
If he can, then only start debating on whether he will get positive assessment or not

Cheers
