How we aim to handle your complaint.

We aim to do our best to resolve your complaint by the end of the third business day after the day we receive it (excluding weekends). If we do, we shall send you a summary resolution communication to confirm that we have resolved your complaint and outline how to refer it to the Financial Ombudsman Services (FOS) if you are a micro enterprise, small business or a guarantor, and are dissatisfied with the resolution.
If we cannot resolve it by end of the third business day, we shall send you an acknowledgement by close of business to keep you informed of the measures being taken in respect to your complaint resolution.
We aim to resolve all complaints within eight weeks. After investigating your complaint, we will send you a final written response and advise you whether we have upheld the complaint or not.
Where we have upheld your complaint, we shall highlight to you how we will resolve your dissatisfaction. If you agree to the resolution, then we will consider the complaint closed. If we did not uphold your complaint, then we shall advise you accordingly of the reason and how we reached this outcome.
Where you are a micro enterprise as defined by the FOS (less than 2 million euros annual turnover and fewer than 10 employees), small business (annual turnover of less than £6.5 million And employs fewer than 50 persons OR balance sheet of less than £5 million), guarantor and you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the complaint, then you can escalate your dissatisfaction to the FOS. The details of the FOS are available below.
Where we cannot resolve your complaint within the prescribed eight weeks, we shall advise when we shall be able to resolve the complaint. Where you are eligible, we will provide you with a copy of the FOS explanatory leaflet, which will provide you with enough information, should you want to refer your dissatisfaction to the FOS directly. We will write to you again once we have completed our investigation and advise you of the outcome.
