Complaints Handling Policy

We, at Mactavish, are committed to providing high quality services to all our clients. But if a problem does arise or if you are unhappy about our service, we ask that you to tell us in order to help us improve our standards.

If you believe that we have got something wrong, have concerns with the way we are dealing with you or are unhappy with an invoice you have received please do tell us. The sooner you tell us, the sooner we can take steps to put matters right.

Our complaints resolution process

You should first discuss the problem with the person dealing with your project, but if this does not resolve the problem, please contact our Client Services Director, Liam Fitzpatrick, preferably by email ( Alternatively, you can contact us by sending an email to outlining the details of the problem.

What will happen next?

Mr Fitzpatrick will send you a letter acknowledging your complaint and asking you to confirm or explain any details. We will in most cases deal with your complaint by correspondence but if it is appropriate, we may suggest meeting with you at this stage. Mr Fitzpatrick may also delegate your complaint to another person within our organisation (including our CEO, Bruce Hepburn or any of our board members) if this is administratively more convenient or sensible and will notify you who the delegate will be. From this point the following steps will be taken:

  1. Your complaint will be registered in our central register.
  2. Your complaint will be investigated by an examination of our project documentation (as required) and by speaking to the person responsible for your project and the relevant Team Leader.
  3. The person investigating the complaint should be in a position to write to you expressing preliminary views no later than 21 days after we have ascertained full details of your complaint and its circumstances. Alternatively, we may suggest that a meeting is being held with you to discuss your complaint and the way in which it can be best be answered or resolved. If you particularly would like to have a meeting, then you should raise this during that period, and we will do our best to arrange a meeting as soon as reasonably practicable.
  4. If a meeting is arranged then we will give you ample notice of that meeting and where it should take place.
  5. At any meeting we may put forward suggestions or alternatively ask for time to consider anything you have said and steps that we consider appropriate to resolve the issues. We will write to you within five days of any meeting to confirm that the meeting took place and set out any suggestions that we have either agreed with you or have subsequently decided to put forward.
  6. If there is no meeting then we will write to you with the conclusion of our investigations and any suggestions that we have as to how any complaint could be resolved or remedied.
  7. If you are not satisfied with our conclusions/any suggestions then please let us know within ten working days of the date on which we write to you. You should let us know in what ways you are dissatisfied with what we have stated/suggested. We will then review the position in light of what you state. This review will be carried out by Mr Fitzpatrick or, in his absence or if appropriate, by our CEO or a board member nominated by him. We will notify you of the result of the review within ten working days of the date on which you send to us your letter requesting the review. We would very much hope that your complaint will have been satisfactorily resolved by that stage.

If you are not satisfied by the outcome of our resolution process, you can then contact the Financial Ombudsman Service, Exchange Tower, Harbour Exchange, London, E14 9SR or via normally within six months of receiving a final written response from us.

For further information, you should contact the Financial Ombudsman on 0800 023 4567 or via their complaints portal on their website
