The Financial Ombudsman Service offers a free, independent complaint resolution service. For more information on the services provided by the FOS please use the following links.
|Consumer: https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/consumers||SME: https://sme.financial-ombudsman.org.uk|
You have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service, free of charge – but you must do so within six months of the date of the final response letter.
If you do not refer your complaint in time, the Ombudsman will not have our permission to consider your complaint and so will only be able to do so in very limited circumstances. For example, if the Ombudsman believes that the delay was as a result of exceptional circumstances.
If you were sold this product online or by other electronic means and within the European Union (EU) you may refer your complaint to the EU Online dispute Resolution (ODR) platform. Upon receipt of your complaint the ODR will escalate your complaint to your local dispute resolution service – this process is free and conducted entirely online.
You can access the ODR platform on https://ec.europa.eu/odr
