We will respond to your complaint (usually by phone or email) within three working days of receipt. Some issues can be resolved quickly and, if we are able to reach a satisfactory conclusion within this timescale, we will endeavour to do so. In this instance, we will then write to you to confirm the outcome.

If your complaint relates to our consumer credit regulated activities, we will also provide you with a copy of the Financial Ombudsman Service Leaflet.
