I'm trying to connect to my bank (HSBC UK) but each time it tries to connect I get an error 404 code. I can see that the web address its using is incorrect but how can I change this?

Good day, @Lord Tom.


There are times that the browser is full of frequently accessed page resources, causing some unusual responses. 


To isolate the data traffic in your browser, I suggest accessing your account using an incognito browser. Here are the keyboard shortcuts to access it:

  • Google Chrome, press CTRL  Shift N
  • Mozilla Firefox: press CTRL  Shift P
  • Safari: press Command Shift N

If it works, I suggest proceeding with clearing the cache. There are times too much data can accumulate over time and cause issues when utilizing QuickBooks. Alternatively, we can use other supported browsers to further isolate the issue.


 Also, please take note that this connection will be available for banks in phases. When it's ready for your bank, you'll see a banner on the Banking menu. Once you have it, you can update your connection to ensure your current feed won't stop working.


You'll want to categorize and match your transactions to make sure they're accounted for correctly and prevent duplicates. Then, you can reconcile them to ensure your books are accurate.


Get back to me if you have other concerns. I'll be around to answer them all for you. Keep safe and have a good one!

Hi Grace

Thanks for getting back to me.

I have followed all of your instructions but I'm still getting no joy.

I have attached a document showing the processes that I'm taking. In the 1st one I select 'HSBC UK Business and then click next, in the 2nd one I click on 'Go to my Bank's Website' and then after a little time I get the message shown in picture 3. The web address at the top is blurred but reads  but the web address where I normally log on to my bank is I have tried putting the quickbooks web address directly into 3 browsers and get the same error 404 code everytime.
