The Complaint Assistant

1. File a complaint with the company

Start by contacting the company with which you made the purchase agreement. File your complaint as soon as possible after noticing the problem and try to negotiate a suitable compensation.

To make the resolution of possible disputes easier, we recommend that all complaints be filed in writing. When you send the complaint by email the message will be saved and you can share its content later with the consumer advice, if needed.

Justify your demands and provide evidence to support your claim, if possible. For example, photographs, documents, e-mail correspondence, and other evidence (such as fault diagnoses) may help.

Before using the Complaint Assistant on this page we recommend that you familiarize yourself with our instructions for various situations.

The Complaint Assistant

The application helps you draw up a written complaint that you can send to the trader. The Complaint Assistant will first ask you for information that can be useful in resolving your issue.

The end product will be a complaint letter, which you can then send to the trader.

Contact the consumer advisors

If your complaint to the company is unsuccessful, contact the consumer advice. Consumer advice provides free guidance and mediation in disputes. Consumer advice gives guidance in Finnish and Swedish. Therefore persons wishing to consult an advisor in some other language must get an interpreter at their own expense.
