At Bank Australia we understand you may not be entirely satisfied with how we resolve an issue that concerns you. We do our best, but sometimes it may just not be enough. So, we want to be sure you know what to do if you still feel dissatisfied with the way we have responded to your concern.

We take all customer complaints seriously. We encourage customers to access our complaints and dispute resolution service.

Steps to resolve complaints and disputes

Step 1: Register your complaint

We can often easily fix a complaint as soon as we know about it.

You can talk with our staff over the counter or by telephone or register your complaint online or by letter.

Mailing something? Bank Australia, Private Bag 12, Kew VIC 3101.

Step 2: Escalate to the Resolution Team

If you feel your complaint has not been satisfactorily resolved you can ask for the matter to be referred to our Resolution Team. 

We know an independent review and investigation process is important. 

We have established a Resolution Team to independently investigate complaints and decide on each matter. 

You can contact the Resolution Team if: 

(a) your complaint has not been satisfactorily resolved within 5 business days
(b) you feel uncomfortable dealing with the manager responsible for fixing your complaint
(c) you are not satisfied with a manager’s response to your complaint or with their conduct
(d) you feel your complaint should be investigated in confidence, without specified staff being responsible for the bank’s response.

Step 3: External Dispute Resolution

If our best efforts are still not enough, you have access (free of charge) to an independant, registered service for resolving disputes, the Financial Service Ombudsman Service. 

When we tell you about a complaint outcome, or if we can't fix a complaint within an acceptable time, we will explain how you can access these services. 

Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS)

Call: 1800 367 287
Mail: GPO Box 3, Melbourne Vic 3001

Before the Financial Ombudsman Service can investigate your complaint, you generally need to have provided us with a chance to address the complaint. Approaching us directly should result in a quicker resolution.
