There is nothing like compulsory
If you don't have it, it's not the end of th world
You have to provide some other credible evidence instead

It's recommended that you provide it as it's a reliable 3rd party evidence

2nd company can you get a statement from your employer on their letterhead that you and all other employees were paid in cash as per company policy ?

By any chance would you be depositing a part of the salary in the bank on regular basis after getting the same in cash ?

Was tax deducted from your salary in the company ?

Did you file income tax returns during that period ?

Do you have Physically signed payslips for the period ?

These are some of the alternative evidence which come to mind
See how many you can get .

Cheers

Was tax deducted from your salary in the company ?[Not sure, I will check with them]

Did you file income tax returns during that period ? [No]

Do you have Physically signed payslips for the period ? [Yes, We basically used to sign 2 slips, one for our record and one comapnys record]

These are some of the alternative evidence which come to mind

is the company still operating and is a well known company ?
Does it have its Own website etc ?
In case of a verification call from the department, will they back up all your claims ?

Check the tax deducted or not by the company and then decide
If not tax then provident fund or any similar scheme the company participated in of which you were a part
As the company is apparently co operating with you, they will be the best person to tell you which 3rd party evidence they can provide to prove that you actually worked there

I just called them and they were saying that tax was not deducted because we were small company at that time. There was not provident fund scheme either :( .

They must be filing some return with the government authorities on the names of the employees ?

I don't think so. Actually, back in pakistan, mostly small size companies are operating in this way. They don't file tax returns etc.

I have a quick question, Third party prove is compulsary ?

You have to consider that it's a long period of nearly 4 years

I suspect that in the past many applicants would have tried to give false evidence of employment to get PR or jobs in connivance with the companies which cannot be verified, so some suspicion is bound to arise.

It ultimately boils down to the judgement of the CO how he views this employment as geniuine or not ?
That's is a matter of pure conjecture on which way he will ultimately lean.

You have a reasonable case for proof as the company is very much in existence and has a decent employees strength and international clients
And they are ready to support you in case of verification

It's a risk to some extent as 3rd party evidence is always preferred in such cases and you have none whatsoever

If I were in your shoes, I would have taken the risk and applied

But the final decision is yours

Cheers
