I soon need to redo my Skills Assessment for ACS.
Does any of you know if the years they deduct of your experience to match an Australian degree can be taken from your experience more than 10 years ago?

In my previous ACS assessment my overseas Master degree required 2 years of working experience to be equivalent to an Australian Bachelor degree (I know..). At that time it was taken from the years 2008-2009 and my skilled experiences started in 2010.

This time I am afraid it will be taken from 2010-2011 and skilled experience start to count from 2012, or does experience older than 10 years ago still count for this purpose?

If you are reapplying for the assessment, it is pretty much the same as the last assessment. ACS review all the documents from the beginning as if you haven’t done the assessment before. It’s not that they will start deducting years since the last skill assessment.

For your case, ACS will deduct 2 years from the last 10 years or 4 from your total experience, whichever gives you earlier skill meeting date.
So, you can do the math.

Thanks for your responses.

Applying in March 2019, it seems like ACS will then deduct 2009/3 to 2011/3 and set the start date for skilled experience to 2011/3.

However, let's say I receive an invite two years later on 2021/3, will they then count the skilled employment from ACS set start date or look at the last 10 years minus 2 from the visa lodgement date?

I am right on the limit so it is important to understand exactly where the line is drawn.

Thanks in advance.

First, ACS assessment is valid only for two years.
For points, DHA considers only the last 10 years of your experience, i.e. even if ACS says you have 20 years of relevant experience, only last 10 years of your experience will fetch you the points.
DHA doesn't deduct any years from the relevant experience, just that only last 10 years of ACS assessed 'relevant experience' will be considered.
And once you receive the invite, it doesn't matter how many points you have from then.

Do I have to do skill assessment from ACS again in order to claim points?
If you are in the same company and your duties remain the same, you don't need to.

During my first ACS skills assessment, I didn't submit one of my job experience (company A) details (~2 years) because I thought the other experiences should be sufficient. Now, I received my results and noticed that they have removed 2 years from my total 6 years of relevant experience. How do I request for ACS to reconsider my application to include company A? I'm working on getting the statutory declaration from my manager from company A.

Please advise.

You have to file a review application. See 'After your assessment' section of Migration Skills Assessment - FAQS

Thanks all for your answers and discussions.

I have one more query, on one of my reference letters there is only address to the company but no direct contact/phone number to the manager who signed it.

Will ACS still accept this or will I have to redo it?

Does it have the company's email and phone number?
In my case, two out of three companies reference letters only had the company phone number and email, not the contact details of the person who signed them.
Having said that, if possible it is always good to have the contact details of the person who signed it.

Hello Everyone,

I have applied for an renewal submitting documents for the recent 2 years experience, as my ACS got expired last month. How many weeks does it take in the recent times for the ACS assessment?

ACS will accept it but DHA may not

Get your assessment done on this reference letter, but in due course get it changed to include your salary and the contact number of the person signing it

Cheers

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. Also another thing I would like to know, in my employer reference letter the company has mentioned "Full time" and not specifically as(40 hrs/ week) which is mentioned in the Employment Reference sample. Will this be a problem when ACS is doing the assessment?
