Insolvency can be a difficult process and sometimes, tough decisions have to be taken.
Sometimes, these can be upsetting. You can complain to the team member dealing with your case. However, if you are still unhappy, we ask you to put your complaint in writing so that it can be investigated fully. If writing is difficult for you, for example, if English is not your first language, please contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau for help.
- acknowledge your complaint within 3 working days
- investigate the background
- ask you for additional information in certain circumstances
- provide a full response within 10 working days
- if for any reason we cannot respond within that time frame, you will be told why and when you should expect a response
If we have made a mistake, it will be rectified and you will receive an apology. Sometimes, people complain because they do not have a complete understanding of the law governing our work. If this is the case, we will provide a clear explanation of the matters affecting our duties in plain English.
Your complaint will be investigated by your trustee (or the office holder in a corporate case). If you are still unhappy, you can ask another insolvency practitioner within the company to review it again. Details of our insolvency practitioners can be found here.
INSOLVENCY SERVICE – COMPLAINTS GATEWAY
SKSi works in a highly regulated environment, and is a member of the Insolvency Practitioners Association (IPA) and all our practitioners are licenced by the IPA or ICAS. If we can not resolve your complaint, and if you think they have failed in their professional duty in some way, you can complain to the Complaints Gateway operated by the Insolvency Service (A Government Department).
However you must first allow SKSi an opportunity to resolve the matter before you contact the Insolvency Service.
