The DIBP recently released new occupation quotas for the programme year 2016/17. We reported on this and were thrilled for accountants who had their ceilings lifted a whopping 89% from 2525 to 4777. The website now reads “For 2016/17, the percentage of stock employment for Accountants has been calculated as 4777 across the entire skilled migration programme” and the quota now sits at 2500, a drop from programme year 2015/16. Accountants were the only occupation to have had the wrong numbers put up. Quite the disappointment for accountants out there. C’mon, DIBP!
