Making a suggestion.
If you have any suggestions you feel will enable us to provide you with better products and services, please let us know.
Making a compliment.
There is nothing so encouraging as a well-earned compliment. So if you have received exceptional service from BankSA, please let us know so that we can pass on the compliment.
Making a complaint.
If you’re ever unhappy about something we’ve done – or perhaps not done – please give us the opportunity to put things right.
Our aim is to resolve your complaint within 5 working days, however, where possible we will resolve your complaint on the spot. If we need some additional time to get back to you, we will let you know. Should we be unable to resolve your concern at your first point of contact, we will then refer the complaint to our dedicated Customer Solutions team.
Our Customer Solutions Managers are here to find a solution for you and will ensure that you're regularly updated about the progress we are making to resolve your complaint.
If you are a Business Bank, Institutional Bank, Premium Banking or Private Banking customer please contact your Relationship Manager or Private Banker in the first instance. Alternatively, you can contact us using the following contact details.

If you are in a branch:
You can tell us in person.
If you are still unhappy.
If you are not satisfied with our response or handling of your complaint, you can contact the BankSA Customer Advocate (Customer Advocate) or the external dispute resolution scheme, the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).
From 1 July 2019 and for a 12-month period, AFCA will review eligible complaints dating back to the start of 2008. BankSA encourages customers to contact us directly in the first instance regarding any legacy complaints. Please refer to the AFCA website set out below for more information.
The role of the Customer Advocate is to provide an independent review of the outcome of your complaint. The Customer Advocate operates separately from our day to day business areas and its recommendations are binding on the bank. If you choose to contact the Customer Advocate first, you can still refer your complaint to an External Scheme if you remain dissatisfied. The Customer Advocate will advise you of the kinds of complaints they can help with. Find out more (and how to contact) your Customer Advocate.
Australian Financial Complaints Authority
The Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) is not part of BankSA. AFCA provides a free and independent service to resolve complaints by consumers and small businesses about financial firms (e.g. banks), where that complaint falls within AFCA’s terms of reference.
The contact details for AFCA are set out below.
Other options may be available to you. You may wish to get legal advice from your community legal centre or Legal Aid.
