Reauthorisation of bank account

Welcome to the QuickBooks Community, er14. I appreciate you for letting us know about the error message you encountered. I'm here to share some troubleshooting steps to fix the issue you're having with reauthorising your bank account to QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE).


Beforehand, can you please share the name of your bank provider? This way, we can better check if there are any related issues with reauthorising your bank.


Furthermore, there are a few reasons why you're getting banking errors in your account. Among these are:


  • The bank recently made some changes to their security feature or connection.
  • Log-in credentials set up in QBSE don't match with the online banking login.
  • QBSE is unable to connect to your bank's website.


For now, let's perform a few browser troubleshooting solutions to solve this unusual behavior in QBSE. We can start by logging into your account through a private/incognito window. Private browsing prevents cookies from being stored on your computer, making it a great place to identify browser issues. To save you time, use either of these keyboard shortcuts:


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


Once you're in incognito mode, try to reauthorise your bank account. If the issue persists, I suggest using other supported browsers to rule out the possibility of a browser-related issue.


However, I recommend contacting our Technical Support Team if the problem continues after performing the steps above. They're equipped with the tools to perform a screen-sharing session to investigate this behavior further.


Moreover, you'll want to create rules to speed up reviews and help categorise your online transactions quickly.


I'm always around and ready to assist if you have more questions about reauthorising your bank account in QBSE. Just let me know in the comments below. Stay safe!
