Who will deal with my complaint?

In the first instance, your complaint will be handled by our complaints coordinator. If you are not satisfied with their response, you may ask to be referred to our Risk and Compliance team.

If you are still unhappy, the Financial Ombudsman Service may be able to help.

How will my complaint be handled?

We will try to resolve your complaint as quickly as we can, preferably within 24 hours. At the latest, we will acknowledge it within five working days.

Our aim is to put things right with our first response. Sometimes, though, a longer investigation is needed. In these cases, we try to complete our review within four weeks. If that is not possible, we will explain why – and let you know when you can expect to hear from us again.

We hope you will be satisfied with our response. If we do not hear from you within eight weeks, we will treat your complaint as settled and close our files. Should you tell us later that you are still unhappy, we will review it again.

The Ombudsman

Subject to meeting certain criteria, you have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (opens in a new window), free of charge. If your complaint relates to acts or omissions that have taken place after 1 April 2019, you can refer your complaint to the Ombudsman if you are:

  • a small- to medium-sized enterprise which employs fewer than 50 people and has a turnover of less than £6.5m or annual balance sheet that does not exceed £5m; or
  • a charity which has an annual income of less than £6.5m; or
  • a trustee of a trust which has a net asset value of less than £5 million; or
  • individuals who act as personal guarantors for loans to businesses in which they are involved.

If your complaint relates to acts or omissions that took place before 1 April 2019, you can refer your complaint to the Ombudsman if you are:

  • a micro enterprise which employs fewer than 10 people and has a turnover or annual balance sheet that does not exceed €2m; or
  • a charity which has an annual income of less than £1m; or
  • a trustee of a trust which has a net asset value of less than £1 million.

Although there are time limits for referring your complaint to the Ombudsman, we will consent to the Ombudsman considering your complaint even if you refer the complaint outside that time.
