There isn't consensus on whether DHA checks employment before your date deemed skill by your assessing authority.

In camp 1:
Any employment episodes deducted to deem you skilled is considered fair game for verification, as it is considered integral to whether you are 'skilled' or not.

In camp 2:
Only employment episodes after your date deemed 'skilled' by your assessing authority and marked for claiming points will be verified.

DHA definitely sometimes go above and beyond the assessing authorities (which is why all assessing authorities have that fine print about DHA delegates having the final say in the awarding of points) - and there have been folks who have got positive skills assessments, but refused by the DHA delegate (aka CO).

Not to fear monger, but just to flag.

Some third party evidence folks attach to corroborate and strengthen their skilled employment claims:
-bank statements showing salary credit (CO can cross-check your payslips against these)
-tax assessments
-provident fund statements (e.g. Superannuation equivalent)

They could call up my previous employers and they would confirm they wrote the reference. I have payslips, but my tax record is a mess thanks to HMRC blunders. I also no longer have a UK bank account so it will be difficult to prove the income other than the payslips themselves.

I suppose I will just have to apply and hope for the best. They have granted a previous visa (457) based on that same skills assessment...

Sometimes closed bank accounts might still yield statements - depends on the bank I think.

Either way hang tight, it is easy to go down an endless whirlpool of anxiety trying to preempt what the CO might want or ask.

When did you lodge by the way? (you can update your signature in this forum so all users can know your timeline at a glance in case you wanted that).

Thank you, I’ll try not to worry until there is something to worry about. I sense you know this anxiety whirlpool well?

I’ve not actually applied for PR yet, I’m pretty confident about an invite next week though with 261313 70 points DoE 04/05/18.

I certainly am well acquainted with visa-related anxiety - trying to keep it together and remain relaxed in this last mile, but anything can happen.

Hope you get an invite next week mate

Even if you work for a one man company , it doesn’t matter , as long as all the evidence that you provide is true and can be verified through third party evidence also
