What happens after we receive your complaint
Upon receipt of your complaint, Stake will:
Acknowledge your complaint promptly, usually within 1 business day
Thoroughly assess and investigate your complaint to understand the issues and gather relevant information
Keep you updated of the complaint handling process
Provide you with a final response, outlining our findings and proposed resolution (if any).
We understand the importance of timely resolution. While the complexity of the issue may influence the exact timeframes, we strive to provide you with a final response within 30 calendar days from the date of receiving your complaint. If we are unable to provide you with a final response within this timeframe, we will inform you accordingly and explain the reasons for the delay; your right to complain to AFCA if you are dissatisfied; and the contact details for AFCA.
If you are not happy with the response we provide, or if you have not received a response within the specified timeframes, you have the option to escalate your complaint to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).
