The Insolvency Service 
Insolvency Practitioner Complaint
Before completing this form, read our guidance on complaining about an insolvency practitioner.

We can only send your complaint onto the IPs authorising body if:
  • you have already complained to the IP directly
  • your complaint has not already been assessed by the authorising body
  • your complaint meets the criteria for referral
If you are complaining about the Insolvency Service, we have a separate complaints procedure.

Fields with an asterisk (*) must be completed to submit the form.


Have you complained to the IP or their staff? *

You should complain to the IP before you can use the IP Complaints Gateway.
Has your complaint been assessed by the authorising body before and fully considered? *

We cannot consider complaints that have already been assessed by the authorising body.
Your complaint cannot be taken forward if it has already been subject to the authorising body's complaint procedure.

Supporting evidence

In order for a disciplinary investigation to be taken forward by an authorising body, there must be a clear indication of wrongdoing by an insolvency practitioner (or those working under the direction of an IP).

In most cases, the authorising body will only be able to uphold your complaint if you are able to provide evidence which supports the allegations you have made against the insolvency practitioner.

It will speed up the assessment and investigation processes if you upload evidence that you believe supports your complaint:
  • any agreements between you and the IP
  • your complaint to the IP
  • the response you received to your complaint from the IP

Please indicate whether the evidence detailed below is in your possession and provide copies where possible when submitting this form.
