How to complain
If you would like to make a complaint, please get in touch with us using the contact details on this page.
We aim to provide you with the highest standards of service. However, sometimes things can, and do, go wrong. When this happens we encourage customers to tell us about it so we can aim to put things right. We will do all we can to resolve any problems and ensure that you receive a quick and fair response to any complaints you may have.
We will send you an acknowledgement letter within five working days of your complaint being received by us. If our investigations are not completed within four weeks, we will confirm by letter the reasons for the delay.
If our investigations have not been completed within eight weeks, we will outline our findings to you by letter, explain why we have been unable to resolve the issue and highlight your referral rights to the Financial Ombudsman Service. We will be pleased to deal with all your concerns, however if your complaint relates to additional services offered to Intelligent Finance customers via a third party, you may wish to contact them directly.
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) gives us a maximum number of days to issue a final response;
- If your complaint relates to payment services or e-money (e.g. Direct Debit, Online Transaction) we aim to issue a final response within 15 business days after receiving your complaint. Should something outside of our control cause a delay, the FCA gives us a maximum of 35 business days.
- For all other types of complaint the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) gives us eight weeks to issue a final response but we will aim to get your complaint resolved well before this deadline.
We'll treat your complaint in exactly the same way whether we receive the complaint directly from you or from a Claims Management Company (CMC). You don't need to use a CMC and they'll typically charge an upfront fee or take a proportion of any compensation you may be due. By coming directly to us you'll not be disadvantaged.
We are committed to resolving complaints whenever possible. If we are unable to resolve your complaint, we will provide you with details of how to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. The Financial Ombudsman Service offers a free, independent review service.
