Your complaint matters

We're constantly striving to provide the best possible service, and we'll do our best to resolve any concern you have quickly and fairly.

Our commitment to you

If you’re ever unhappy about something we’ve done – or perhaps not done – please give us the opportunity to put things right.

Our aim is to resolve your complaint within 5 working days, however, where possible we will resolve your complaint on the spot. If we need some additional time to get back to you, we will let you know. Should we be unable to resolve your concern at your first point of contact, we will then refer the complaint to our dedicated Customer Solutions team.

Our Customer Managers are here to find a solution for you and will ensure that you're regularly updated about the progress we are making to resolve your complaint. Your complaint will be reviewed in line with our FAIRGO principles. Find out more

We will apply our Legal Dispute Resolution Guidelines where there are legal proceedings. These Guidelines are based on model litigant principles.

The Westpac Group also has a Customer Advocate whose role is to advise and guide our complaint team on how best to resolve a complaint and also to listen to customers and recommend changes be made to bank policies, procedures and processes.

If you do have a suggestion, compliment or complaint, here's an easy way to let us know
