What to do if we can't reach an agreement

The Financial Ombudsman Service is an independent organisation which helps to resolve complaints that customers and financial institutions haven’t been able to resolve themselves.

If you are not satisfied with our response, or if we’ve been unable to resolve your complaint within eight weeks, (15 calendar days for payment related complaints) you can refer the matter to them.

You can contact them in writing at Financial Ombudsman Service, Exchange Tower, Harbour Exchange Square, London, E14 9SR, by telephone on 0800 023 4567 and via email at

Business Banking Resolution Service (BBRS)

Register your interest in using the new dispute resolution service for UK businesses

A new, independent dispute resolution service is being established for eligible small and medium sized businesses in the UK that have unresolved complaints with participating banks.

The new organisation is called the BBRS and will be flexible in the way it resolves disputes, adopting approaches that are most appropriate for each case, and will be guided by the commitment “to do and be seen to do what is right, fair and reasonable at all times”.

We are one of the seven participating banks which has committed to support the BBRS.

If you are interested in finding out more information or in registering your interest in using the new service, please visit the BBRS website

Online Sales and Services complaints

If your complaint is in relation to products or services purchased online from 15 February 2016 you can access the Online Dispute Resolution Platform (ODR Platform). Please note that as this platform will ultimately re-direct your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service, you may prefer to contact us or the Financial Ombudsman Service directly in the first instance about your complaint using the contact details noted above.

Find out more and access the ODR platform.
