Dear All,

I already got statutory declarations for each job, which employment date was written in "Month Day , YYYY." format, like "July 3rd, 2017.

However, my employment references all have my employment dates in "YYYY/MM/DD" format instead of "DD/MM/YY." I know that ACS's "Skills Assessment Guidelines for Applicants" explicitly say we should use the second one in our application documents.

I've tried to ask HR department to modify their employment references' date format but in vain.

I'm afraid that case officer may consider this as an invalid date format and deny my work experiences. Is there anything I can do to make up for these date format mistakes?

I don't think ACS will be too strict about date format as long as specific start and end date is mentioned in letter. If ACS certifies your experience, there is no reason why CO will reject it over date format.

I got my reference letter from my employer with MM/DD/YYYY format only. Applied for ACS and got positive result. I dont think Date format should be an issue with ACS

Date format won't cause any problem provided the dates are correct.
