What happens next?

Once you’ve made a complaint, we’ll send you an acknowledgement within 48 hours to confirm that it has been received, that we’re looking into the complaint and when you can expect to receive a response.

We aim to deal with complaints as quickly as possible, and you should normally receive a final response within 10 working days from the date that your complaint was received.

If for any reason this is not possible, we will contact you to explain the reason for the delay and the expected date of response. This will ideally be within 4 weeks of the complaint but will never exceed 8 weeks from the date we received your complaint.

What happens if I am not happy with the response?

We’re sorry if you’re not happy with the response you’ve received. If your account is covered by the Consumer Credit Act (credit card, store cards, loans and insurance accounts) and you wish to take your complaint further, you can refer it to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).

FOS is a free, independent service for resolving disputes between customers and financial service institutions. You’ll need to contact them within 6 months of our final response letter – and they’ll ask to see the letter as summary of our investigation of your complaint.
