We’re always looking for ways to improve, and hearing from customers like you is a key part of that. 

If we don’t meet your expectations, we want you to tell us what happened and how we can improve what we do. By hearing your complaint and working with you to resolve it, we’ll learn how to prevent it from happening again.

Complaint Guide

Below is a summary of the complaint handling process. For more information about how we handle complaints, click here to read or print a copy of our Complaint Guide.

Step one

What happens next?

We'll try to resolve your complaint immediately. If we can't do that, well tell you:

  • Who will be handling your complaint
  • Their contact details
  • When you can expect us to resolve it.

If we receive your complaint in writing, we'll acknowledge it within 1 business days and give you the name and contact details of the person handling your complaint. 

Step two

How long will it take?

If it takes longer than 5 business days to resolve your complaint, we will confirm the outcome with you in writing.

We aim resolve complaints within 30 days (or 21 days for financial hardship or a default notice).

If we need more information from you, we’ll ask you for it.

If we need more time, we’ll explain why and tell you when you can expect our response. 

Step three

Internal review sought?

If you're not satisfied with how we've resolved your complaint, you can ask our internal Customer Relations team to review our decision.

You can get in touch with this team by:

  • 1800 663 080
  • Send a letter to Customer Relations, Reply Paid 2258, Brisbane Qld 4001


Step four

External review sought?

If you're unhappy with our response you can approach the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA). AFCA provides a free and independent complaint resolution service for financial services.

To contact them you can:

  • 1800 931 678
  • Email info@afca.org.au

How can BOQ help support me?

Authorised Representative

You can ask another person to manage your complaint for you, such as a family member, lawyer or financial counsellor. You'll need to give them a written authorisation form to complete so they can prove to us that they're acting for you. In some cases we may still need to contact you directly.

If you want to appoint an authorised representative, complete the Authorised Representative Authority Form - Complaint and return it to us. 


We know many of our customers prefer to speak to us in a language other than English. If you’d rather speak to us in another language, we can arrange for an interpreter to help you with your complaint when you call us or visit us in branch.

If you’re deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech impairment, we welcome calls through the National Relay Service. The NRS relay officer is present throughout the call to ensure smooth communication, but doesn’t change or interfere with what the parties say.
