Roy Wood Transits are committed to putting our customers first and we strive to deliver excellent customer service every time, which means we very rarely need to adopt a complaints procedure. However, we still think it is vital to have one in place for our customers complete peace of mind. Whilst the above is our mission, we appreciate that sometimes things can go wrong. Its always our intention to resolve any issues quickly and at the point of initial concern. We view complaints and feedback as an opportunity to learn and improve our services and products for the future, as well as a chance to put things right.
Eligible Complainants are legally defined and have additional rights in law that we must acknowledge and adhere to. Eligible complainants are classified by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA Handbook DISP 2.7) as a person who is:
- a consumer
- a micro-enterprise
1. in relation to a complaint relating wholly or partly to payment services, either at the time of the conclusion of the payment service contract or at the time the complainant refers the complaint to the respondent or
2. otherwise, at the time the complainant refers the complaint to us as the respondent.
A micro-enterprise is determined as an enterprise that employs fewer than 10 people and has a turnover or annual balance that does not exceed 2 million euros, taking into accountthe enterprises ‘partner enterprises’ or ‘linked enterprises’.
- a charity which has an annual income of less than £6.5 million at the time the complainant refers the complaint to the respondent
- a trustee of a trust which has a net asset value of less than £5 million at the time the complainant refers the complaint to the respondent
- a CBTL consumer – applicable to buy to let credit agreement.
We do not offer these types of agreements
- a small business at the time the complainant refers the complaint to the respondent.
A small business is determined as an enterprise that is not a micro-enterprise and has an annual turnover of less than £6.5 million and employs fewer than 50 people or has a balance sheet total of less than £5 million
- a guarantor if the complaint arises from matters relevant to the relationship with the respondent

We have therefore detailed below the relevant points.
