If we refer you to a broker, please understand that the broker or issuer may only be able to assist on a select range of products and may not be able to assist you with a specific product/provider. Therefore before you act or commit to any plan, confirm the scope of the products on which the broker or issuer can advise and make sure that you understand the consequences and implications of any restrictions.

We refer your required service to product or service issuers we think my be able to help you or provide a quote to you. We do not assess if a particular product or service is suitable for you.

If any guarantee, term, condition or warranty is implied or imposed in relation to these terms under the Australian Consumer Law or any other applicable legislation (a “Non-Excludable Provision”) and we are able to limit your remedy for a breach of the Non-Excludable Provision, then our liability for breach of the Non-Excludable Provision is limited to one or more of the following at our option: (i) in the case of goods, the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods, the repair of the goods, the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or of acquiring equivalent goods, or the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired; or( (ii) in the case of services, the supplying of the services again, or the payment of the cost of having the services supplied again.

1.33 How we handle feedback and complaints

Biz aspires to helping you make better decisions.

We hope you’ll be delighted with the tools, services and analysis we make available to you, but if you are not delighted, we are keen to know when and why you’re not satisfied so that we can improve. You can read about how we will handle your complaint using our internal dispute resolution (IDR) procedure located here.

Rest assured that we genuinely appreciate your feedback which is why we’ve tried to make it simple for you to provide us with your views. You can simply use our Online Platform to report any problems or issues you have with us, our Online Platform or the services we provide.

Whatever problems or concerns you may have we’ll do our best to resolve them quickly, transparently and fairly.

Unfortunately, that’s not always possible but if you are unhappy with our response we also have a formal disputes resolution process in place.

Feedback, complaints and Internal Dispute Resolution.

At Biz, we believe that all feedback – even criticism or complaints – provide us with insights that can only make our business better. So we legitimately welcome user feedback and encourage them to tell us what we’re doing well and where we can improve.

We have IDR processes and procedures that generally accord with international standards and reflect our commitment to these principles:


The entire Management Team believes that feedback is a gift. We supplement our top-down commitment to effective IDR with adequate staff training, appropriate resourcing and effective management and reporting systems.


Our IDR approach is designed to allow equal opportunity to both parties and an objective analysis of the issues. We’ll also ensure that our responses are considered and reasonable.


The first responder and main point of contact for complaints will be a member of Biz’s customer care team., Where necessary, complaints may be escalated to our Legal Counsel to ensure that your complaint is handled by experienced staff who have the authority to settle the complaints (or facilitate direct access to a person who could).


We don’t hide either our approach or our principles and we’ve made it ridiculously easy for you to contact us. You contact us directly through our contact us page.


We prefer you to provide your feedback through our website but you can make a complaint by any reasonable means including letter, telephone, in person or email.


If you require our help to submit your complaint, we’re happy to assist you.


If you have a complaint, the worst result is to feel ignored or that your concerns aren’t important. We value feedback, and we respect the effort you’ve made to share your views with us, so we will:

acknowledge your complaint within 3 business days; and
seek to resolve your complaint at the earliest opportunity, and within 30 days.
We won’t guarantee any outcomes except that our response (including any remedies or compensation offered) will be fair and appropriate. If we need to quantify loss or damage, we’ll consider relevant legal principles, relevant codes of conduct, concepts of fairness and relevant industry best practice.


Our IDR process is free for complainants.

Data Collection

We love feedback, but we love information more and complaints provide us with rich data about our business. For these reasons, we track categories including:

the type of complaint;
the subject of complaint;
the outcome or result of the complaint; and
the timeliness of our response.


The privacy of your personal information is important to us and we respect your confidentiality. We won’t ask you for information we don’t need but, in order to address your complaint, we may collect some personal information from you.

You have the right not to provide the personal information we request, but this may compromise the effectiveness of the response or information you receive. Rest assured that any personal information we collect or receive will be handled in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Systemic and recurring issues

Feedback is a gift and our IDR process treats it appropriately. We take the time to try to identify systemic issues or recurring problems to prevent other problems or anticipated complaints. Complaints data is also regularly reviewed by our Executive Management Team.
