How to Make a Complaint
To help us understand your concerns and investigate them as quickly as possible, please have the following available when you call, or include them in any email or letter that you send us:
- Your full name, address and case reference number.

What Happens Next?
Initially we would ask you to contact a Client Service Officer who will try to resolve your complaint over the telephone. If you are satisfied with the outcome following this, no further action will be taken.
If we are unable to resolve your complaint at first contact, or you would prefer to submit your complaint in writing, a written acknowledgement will be issued to you no later than five working days from receiving your complaint. Your concerns will be fully investigated by a Complaints Officer along with the Insolvency Practitioner. A final response will be issued to you within eight weeks of the initial receipt of your complaint or we will explain why we are not able to issue a response within that timescale.
During this time the Complaints Officer may need to contact you to seek additional information or clarification regarding your complaint.
If you are not satisfied with our response to your complaint you have the right to make a formal complaint to our regulator:
