At BRI Business Recovery and Insolvency we always strive to provide a professional and efficient service. However, we recognise that it is in the nature of insolvency proceedings for disputes to arise from time to time.  As such, should you have any comments or complaints regarding the administration of a particular case then in the first instance you should contact the IP acting as office holder.

If you consider that the IP has not dealt with your comments or complaint appropriately you should then put details of your concerns in writing to our complaints officer John Warburton, BRI Business Recovery and Insolvency, 100 St James Road, Northampton, NN5 5LF.  This will then formally invoke our complaints procedure and we will endeavour to deal with your complaint under the supervision of a senior partner unconnected with the appointment.

Most disputes can be resolved amicably either through the provision of further information or following negotiations.  However, in the event that you have exhausted our complaints procedure and you are not satisfied that your complaint has been resolved or dealt with appropriately, you may complain to the regulatory body that licences the insolvency practitioner concerned.  Any such complaints should be addressed to The Insolvency Service, IP Complaints, 3rd Floor, 1 City Walk, Leeds, LS11 9DA, and you can make a submission using an on-line form available at www.gov.uk/complain-about-insolvency-practitioner; or you can email insolvency.enquiryline@insolvency.gov.uk; or you may phone 0300 678 0015.  Information on the call charges that apply is available at https://www.gov.uk/call-charges.

BRI Business Recovery and Insolvency are also authorised and regulated by the FCA, registration number 702532, to undertake debt adjustment and debt counselling.  Complaints relating to matters under our FCA authorisation can be referred to the Financial Ombudsman Service, Exchange Tower, London E14 9SR and you may be able to access their Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) system.  More information can be found at http://financial-ombudsman.org.uk/consumer/complaints.htm.
