Sources in Australia have revealed that Accountants might not be on the Skilled Occupation List (SOL) for much longer. This may complicate matters for accountants the world over who are interested in immigration to Australia on skilled migrant visas.
This change is likely to come into effect on 1 July 2014. Although a final decision has not yet been reached, professional accounting bodies would need to justify why Accountants need to remain on the SOL moving forward.
The good news is that this change has not taken place yet and there is still time to apply for a skilled migrant visa before it happens. Migrate 2 Oz has significant experience in dealing with skilled visa applications, particularly accountants, given that all the registered agents are themselves qualified accountants.
