How to make a complaint?
We want to give you superb customer service but sometimes things might go wrong. We can usually resolve most
issues straightaway, so please email us on
or call us on +44 1316 410 018 to tell us how we can help.
What you’ll need to tell us so that we can help you:
- Your personal details,
- What’s gone wrong and
- What you want us to do to put things right.
We’ll be in touch with you as soon as we can and let you know what will happen next. We’ll try to resolve your complaint within 3 working days of receipt – if we’re unable to do this we will write to you acknowledging that we have received your complaint and the next steps that will be taken. For more complex issues it’s likely that we will need longer to look into what’s happened and we may ask you for further information to help us reach an outcome. We’ll give you regular updates. And once we’ve dealt with your complaint, we’ll go back and see what we can learn from your experience to improve our service.
If you’re not happy with our response
If you’re unhappy with the outcome you can ask the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) to carry out an independent
review of your complaint. In any event, you have the right to ask the FOS to review your complaint if we’ve
been unable to resolve it within 8 weeks.
The FOS can help with most complaints if you are:
- A consumer
- A business employing fewer than 10 persons that has an annual turnover that doesn’t exceed €2 million
If you are unsure whether the FOS will consider your complaint, please contact them directly for advice. The
service the FOS provides is free and impartial and contacting them at any stage of your complaint will not
affect your legal rights. The contact details for the FOS are:
