HI,

I have got few queries regarding the Skills Assessment from VETASSESS on Internal Auditors.

I am a ACCA Member (2012)+Bsc (HonS) Applied Aco****ancy -2009(I got a transcript for the same however, 3 subject in ACCA i.e F1,2,3 i got exemption)+BBA (major in Finance) 2002

Further I have got 4.5 years of Internal Audit Experience from 2011 in big 4.

Please advise me shall I send my all qualification info to VETASSESS or only ACCA member and BSC(OBU) for getting positive assessment. (Guess it is more relevant area for Internal Audit).

What about working experience from which point do they assess? 2002, 2009 or 2012.??

If anybody have got same kind of situation and done their assessment, Please please advise me.
Thank u

Hi

Based on my experience, I will suggest you to get your experience and qualifications assessed by any accounting body i.e ICAA/CPA/IPA. What I have observed is that internal audit experience is considered relevant to accountant occupation so your experience will be assessed as relevant if you chose to be assessed as an accountant.

For experience, try to determine when did you covered the required knowledge areas for the accountant occupation. If you covered all the required areas during your BBA or BSC than all of your experience would be considered. IF not than they will consider it after you completed your ACCA exams.

But you must keep in mind that quota for accountants has been filled this year. You should wait till July and see if they keep accountants on SOL or not.

If you do not need your experience points I would recommend you to get yourself assessed as internal auditor. IA is currently on occupation list and chances are it will remain there. But they deduct some experience to give a positive assessment.

Hope it helps

Regards

Hello SK,

I got my assessment done from VETASSESS and i have internal audit back ground. However i am not sure for they consider your pre member ship experience. e.g from 2011 till 2012 (until you got your ACCA memebership) but that does not make too difference because both comes under 3-5 years experience slab.
Furthermore, i have read in this forum that CPA/ ICAA create fuss about Accounting theory subject, VETASSESS is relatively simple and easy route.

Cheers

I am very hopeful that they will count your experience from 2012 on wards. Good luck and i guess you better submit all of your degrees not just ACCA, if they are available

Hi sam,
Referring to our previous conversation, I have an issue on employment letter to be sent to Vetassess. My previous employer agree to include the duties I have performed during my tenure with them. However, my present employer (Big 4) is only providing me a employment letter mentioning that I am presently working in Risk Consulting Department. Technically, risk consulting is job which completely related to internal audit, whereas I don't know VETASSESS would accept only this much of information for the complete assessment.

Please advise me on this matter or any alternatives I can do to satisfy to VETASSESS.

Thank you

1) DEGREE: BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN HOSPITALITY,CATERING & TOURISM(BScHT: 3 years)
MAIN SUBJECTS: a) FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING
b) BUSINESS LAW
c) BUSINESS ECONOMICS
d) BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

190 or 189 Internal Auditor

Hi All,

I have following points claimed for the EOI I had filled on 30 October 2016. Can anyone suggest me what is the chances of getting invitation. I heard that NSW 190 are quicker to invite and process the Visa too.

Other issue is regarding 189 visa, as I am adding 5 more points in April 2016 from my current work experience, it would be rational for me to wait till April and go for 189?
if in case i got invitation from 190 before shall i grab that opportunity instead. Please suggest me. All you valuable suggestion would be appreciable.
