So I was working on a Consulting capacity 8 years ago with a company who have closed their operations recently. Since this experience is vital for me to claim that 1 years of experience for my 5 extra points, can someone let me know what I could do show that experience in the ACS evaluation? I don't know anyone who was working with me since I was the only one representing them. Can anyone let me know what could be my further options?

  • Would e.g. your employment contract count? Did you not have a boss you could contact? Search people on Linkedin?

ACS Skill Assessment recognizes that there may be circumstances in which applicants are unable to obtain the necessary information directly. In that case, the applicant can make a Statutory Declaration; see page 12, Section 11. STATUTORY DECLARATIONS AND AFFIDAVITS.

A better understanding may be had from an earlier ACS document, Pre-Application Skills Assessment (PASA) Guidelines for Applicants:

1.2. Where past education providers and/or employers no longer exist and you need this information for your application, you may submit a personal statement on a properly signed and witnessed Statutory Declaration. The Statutory Declaration is to detail as a minimum:

§ the reason/s why you are submitting a Statutory Declaration; and

§ all the necessary detail about your education and/or employment.

Important: If you provide a Statutory Declaration with your application, you must also provide some form of corroborative information from a third party for the claims made in the Statutory Declaration.
