Hi,
I want to maintain two years from my previous company, it's been down and I have no idea what and how to do this.
I can contact my friends but how can I maintain the experience and payslips salaries.

If you don't have experience letter and payslips already, the best bet would be to get a statutory declaration from your past supervisor and have financial documents such as bank statements, tax documents etc. to support your claim. Of course, it won't guarantee anything, but as I said, it would be your best bet.

Another gotcha, this morning I have received an answer from ACS:




Dear Hasan

Thank you for your email.

To assess experience we require independent verifiable evidence in the form of either an employer reference on company letterhead or Statutory Declaration from a Supervisor/Manager.

Each employment reference must contain:

• Start and Finish Dates of Employment

• Description of Duties Performed

• Hours worked - Full time or Part time

• Country where Employment was completed

• Company Letterhead and signed by the author

• Marked as a Certified Copy



All Statutory Declarations or Affidavits must be clearly signed by an authorised witness to be considered for assessment.

All Statutory Declarations or Affidavits must clearly state that the document was “Sworn Before” or “Signed Before” or “Witnessed Before” the authorised witness by the referee and signed by the authorised witness, along with the date and place in which the declaration was witnessed.

The Statutory Declaration or Affidavit must be written by a third party work colleague and NOT written by you, the applicant.

Important Note: Self-written Statutory Declaration or Affidavit will be assessed as not suitable.

A Statutory Declaration or Affidavit written by a work colleague needs to describe the working relationship with you and details of your duties performed with relevant dates of employment. It is preferable that the work colleague writing the declaration be at a supervisory level.


An example of how to define a working relationship is as follows –


'I can confirm that (applicant name) carried out the duties and roles specified in this document at (company name) as I was his/her (supervisor, colleague, manager etc.) who interacted with and witnessed his/her work on a regular basis throughout the employment.'



Only one of the following additional documents will be required for all Statutory Declarations or Affidavits:


  • Payslip – preferably first & last payslip
  • Human Resource statement or Service Certificate
  • Termination Letter with corresponding dates


Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi there! I am in a similar situation, where can I get the statutory declaration? Is there some template required to be used? Or I can just to do it my own? Or is there someone who I can connect with to proceed?

Hoping for your response.
