Customer Complaints Policy
Customer Complaints Policy
At Income Group, it is important to us that our Partner/Client are satisfied with the services we provide. Income Group is committed to hearing Partner’s/Client’s suggestions and resolving any complaints Partner/Client may have in an efficient and fair manner. Income Group’s Complaints Management Policy & Procedures have been developed in accordance with best practices. This process ensures that all complaints are handled efficiently.
A complaint is any verbal or written expression of dissatisfaction about the provision or failure to provide, a payment service.
To provide a means of responding to complaints in a timely manner, ensuring necessary action is taken to resolve the Partner’s/Client’s issue to their satisfaction and prevent future recurrence. A complaint is considered resolved when the Partner/Client acknowledges resolution or acknowledges that Income Group cannot assist further.
In scope are all written complaints received from external Partner/Client, or their authorised representative. Whilst Income Group will offer the Partner/Client the opportunity to raise a verbal complaint, the complaint should also be submitted as a written complaint.
Income Group will investigate all complaints about the company, its employees, quality of service or any other allegation of dissatisfaction and respond within the agreed service level. A complaint is considered resolved when the Partner/Client acknowledges resolution or acknowledges that Income Group cannot do more.
We will acknowledge a Partner/Client complaint within 5 working days and provide a primary contact name, who the Partner/Client may direct related queries to until the matter is resolved or cannot be processed further. For most complaints about payment services, we will resolve your complaint within 15 days. In exceptional circumstances, we may take up to 35 days, but we will respond within 15 days to tell the Partner/Client when we will reply fully.
If the Partner/Client is covered by the Consumer Credit Act or the Financial Conduct Authority Dispute Resolution Handbook, we will also provide a link to the Financial Ombudsman Services’ leaflet on Complaints, which can also be found on Income Group’s website.
If you have any questions or would like to raise any issues concerning your agreement with us, simply contact our Complaints Officer by:
