Update: Employment length calculation change

VETASSESS, Australia’s largest skills assessment authority, currently uses only month and year to calculate the employment dates. As of 14 February 2019, they will be considering the exact date, including day, month and year for the Date Deemed Skilled to align with the Department of Home Affairs requirement for the date an applicant’s employment is considered ‘skilled’.

Please note that VETASSESS will continue to retrieve these dates from official documents only. Supporting employment documentation can include payslips, tax returns, and a statement of service from your employer clearly indicating the exact period of employment and if applicable, any period of unpaid leave.
