I graduated from college in India in May 2009, and have worked for a reputed software MNC in India from May 2009 to July 2019. At the time of leaving my job, I had completed 10 years and 2 months of employment that is highly relevant to the occupation I will be submitting for a skills assessment.
Since I quit I have been trying different business ideas as an entrepreneur, which involved doing a lot of software engineering. However I have not registered a company or received any revenues to date.
As I understand ACS will deduct 2 years from my experience in the previous 10 years to arrive at my eligibility date, after which it will count my relevant work experience. As it stands, my corporate work-ex will fall short of 8+ years by around 6 months.
Is there anyone else who was in a similar situation regarding work-ex? Is there some way to claim relevant work-ex as an entrepreneur?
Appreciate the help!
