WorldFirst Disclaimer Policies

Complaints policy

WorldFirst is committed to providing a competitive and efficient service.

We believe in employing well-trained and dedicated staff and the intelligent use of technology to help us achieve this.

Unfortunately, there may be occasions when we fall below the standards you expect, and we have simple, clear procedures in place to set out how we will deal with any complaint you may have about the service you have received.

How to make a complaint

You can make a complaint by any means that is convenient for you - for example by letter, fax, email, telephone or in person, to any member of WorldFirst staff

You can also send an email to: complaints@worldfirst.com. This email address is monitored during UK office hours.

The complaint will be recorded on our systems, and the person handling it will respond in writing within 3 business days acknowledging receipt and giving you their contact details, name and position. We will usually contact you by email, unless you ask us to contact you by post.

We will start investigating your complaint as soon as possible and aim to resolve the matter as quickly as we can, keeping you informed of our progress. In our final response, we will explain our assessment of the complaint to you, along with any remedial action or redress. We may also take measures to improve any systems or processes where necessary.

We will aim to send you our final response within 15 business days. If we’re unable to do this, we will send you an update within 15 business days setting out when we will send you our response by.

If we’ve sent you our final response and you remain dissatisfied, or if you haven’t heard from us within 15 business days of raising your complaint (or after the date by which we’ve told you we’ll send you our response), you may have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (the Ombudsman).

However, please note the following:

  • Only private individuals and small business (micro-enterprises) have the right to take their complaint to the Ombudsman
  • The Ombudsman will only consider complaints about regulated products and services (World First's regulated activities are payment services)
