Step 1 – Querying your contract

If you feel that any of the information that we have submitted to a supplier on your behalf is inaccurate or feel that you did not agree to any aspect of the agreement, we ask that you contact the person who advised you in the first instance. This is primarily so that you are speaking with the person who has the best understanding of your supplies and has an audit history of communications to hand. We will do our utmost to resolve your query right away

Step 2 – Raising a complaint

If you are not happy with the handling of your query and would like to escalate to the next stage, please email info@taurusutilityconsultants.co.uk stating:
