We hope that you will be satisfied with the service that we provide, but we recognise that there may be occasions where you will not be satisfied with the way in which the matter has been dealt with. The procedures below are step-by-step guides to raising your concerns with us.

All of our correspondence states the Recognised Professional Body (RPB) which governs the Insolvency Practitioner(s) with responsibility for the matter. You are able to complain to that RPB at any time through the Insolvency Complaints Gateway which is accessed through the Insolvency Services' website:
