BPS Commercial Ltd Complaints Policy




We take all complaints or any expression of dissatisfaction very seriously. We will investigate in accordance with our procedure set out below and will aim to reach a resolution as speedily as is possible. We do our best to carry out our work fairly and effectively, however we know that there will be times when you feel unhappy about our service. We are committed to putting things right if something goes wrong. Complaints are important to us, because they help us improve what we do and how we do it, so don’t be afraid to let us know your concerns.


Please address your complaints to:


Complaints procedure


Complaints must be submitted in writing in order for our team to investigate your case and provide a detailed response to your enquiry.


Stage 1 Complaints: Problem Solving


We will try to address and resolve your complaint in full at this initial stage.

The best people to sort out most problems are often those who provide the service and so we will speak with you first and then with them to ensure all views are obtained.

We will write to you within three working days to let you know that we have received your complaint. In the letter we will let you know who is dealing with your complaint and the date by when you should receive a response.

We aim to respond within 10 working days. If there is any reason why we can’t, we will contact you and let you know when to expect our response.


Stage 2 Complaints: Investigating


If you are not happy with the outcome of Stage 1, you can take the matter further. We will include details of how to do this in your Stage 1 response letter.

At Stage 2 your complaint and how we dealt with it will be investigated by our Legal advisor / solicitor.

Again, we aim to respond within 10 working days or we will contact you and let you know when to expect our response.


Stage 3 Complaints: Independent Review Stage


If complaints can not be resolved then a right to complaint can be forwarded to our professional body which is the Credit Services Association or court. Each member of staff is aware that procedures must be communicated to individuals who want to make a complaint or have indicated dissatisfaction with the service.

We will endeavor to ensure that all complaints are dealt with and a satisfactory conclusion is reached for all parties.


For Further Help please contact The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).
