Despite Barclays’ talk of cleaning up its reputation, it’s continuing to promote the use of tax havens in some of the world’s poorest countries. Thanks to your work we've clearly caught the attention of Barclays boss, Antony Jenkins. Over 12,000 of us have contacted him in the last few months to tell him to clean up Barclays' act on tax havens in Africa. He's responding to us but he’s still avoiding the real issues. He's just hoping, now, that we go away. We need your help to show that we can’t be brushed off so easily.
We know that Barclays play close attention to their online complaints form, so it's a great way for us to show that we're unhappy with the way they're behaving.
Submit your complaint
Please take 5 minutes to fill in Barclays' online complaints form, you don't need to be a customer to complete it and the message can be as short as you like:
- Open up the online form and complete your details. Note: the postcode box doesn't allow spaces
- For the drop down boxes please select 'I would like to complain' and 'Savings'. We know that 'savings' isn't a perfect description of your complaint, but they don't have a box for their promotion of tax havens in Africa!
- In the text box explain that you would like to see Barclays stop promoting the use of tax havens in Africa because it's unethical and is harming developing countries
- You will need to provide your contact details at the bottom of the form, this is so that Barclays can get back to you with their response
And that's it.
Please get in touch with us as soon as you hear back from Barclays. So far they've done their best to avoid answering this important request so it's really important that we keep up the pressure.
