We just submitted our application for SS and we're now trying to get everything ready for the 176 application. I have emailed DIAC twice to ask what they require to prove years of work experience. The first reply was very general and didn't answer my questions at all, so I tried again and got the exact same reply!
Can anyone here help me?
Our situation is a bit unusual. For starters, we haven't been living in the UK since 2004 so we don't have P60s etc. We have also been self-employed for part of the period. For the past 5 years, though, we have been working for our own company so we are in effect salaried employees and can provide salary information.
We also have a skills assessment from ACS that shows 10 years' experience.
What sort of documents do the DIAC usually ask for? On their help pages, they imply that they only need one payslip plus an employer reference, but I feel like I must be missing something here! Or, combined with the skills assessment verdict, is this in fact all that's needed?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light on this!
