Accountants occupational ceiling 2016/17 - Website updated


The Department has updated its website to clarify the occupational ceilings for accountants in the 2016/17 program year.

The website now carries the clarification reported by the MIA on 23 June 2016, that the 4777 places originally posted to the SkillSelect site would be "the percentage of stock employment for Accountants ... across the entire skilled migration programe".

The website also clarifies that stock employment figures are provided by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, and represent the number of people employed in Australia in each occupation.

The occupational ceiling for accountants under SkillSelect will be 2500 a very slight increase on the 2525 for the 2015/16 program year.
