Australia EOI Skill assessment date to use - File date or Assessment Issued date?


I am a bit confused about the date of skill assessment to be filled in my EOi as there are two dates mentioned in my assessment report.

*Should I fill the date of assessment which is mentioned at the top of the assessment report(Which is the actual date when I received the assessment letter)?


*Should I fill the assessment date as when Australian Computer Society received the assessment request (When I actually submitted the skill assessment)?

Here is the sample from my assessment report:

11 April 2018 ??

Dear Mr Arora,

Thank you for your ICT skills assessment which was received by the Australian Computer Society on 15 February 2018. ??

Your skills have been assessed to be suitable for migration under 261313 (Software Engineer) of the ANZSCO Code.




Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

Lokesh Arora

ACS Assessment Letter Date of Issue

Use ACS Assessment letter’s ‘DATE OF ISSUE’ (Which is the actual date when I received the assessment letter) and not the date you applied.

The date you applied can be used as the start date for FIRST employment that you need to enter in your work experience details to claim points.
