Quickbooks online can not get it to download transactions for Tesco card. try again in a few hours error. this is a new setup so has never worked.
Do you have access to Facebook or Twitter? If so, could you please send QuickBooksUK a private message with your email address so we can look into this further for you?
Hi Koj, no matter what you try you will not connect to the card, in my humble opinion because there is a connection issue, which QB need to fix first.
I spoke to Quickbooks about this issue as our Tesco accounts haven't connected in 24 days now. They said that due to Tesco updating their website, it's caused issues for QB, which they are trying to resolve. If you contact them they will add you to a mailing list to receive an email once the issue is solved.
Not QB's fault exactly, but I must be honest, I was hoping the issue would be solved a lot quicker. As someone who is self employed, this is a real inconvenience. QB is there to give up to date information on expenses, income, profit, etc. which we really rely on at this time of year (end of financial year).
Fingers crossed this will be solved soon.
yeah not the best only reason I switched to online from desktop was for the account syncing.
Have been in contact with them via twitter but not had much back.
Might just go back to my old desktop version as have a few months before i need to find a MTD solution.
Our engineers are already working with Tesco on the fix. While they are still gathering information, you'll want to upload your transactions via a CVS file.
I've got an article that will guide you through the steps: How to import bank transactions using Excel CSV files.
Please know that we're always here if you need anything else.
I have the same problem - not connected to Tesco for 17+ days
I found I was getting an SMA with a one time password every time I opened QB on my phone
Amex & First Direct Accounts function fine
I have deleted the Tesco account and tried to add the two Tesco options one shows '(current account)' or something similar
Now unable to add the account with the same error code

Hi Simon, Its likely to be a while, last time i waited 3 months plus for QB to sort it out, just last year, this time so far over a month........ and no one lets you know if theres any progress! Just sit in the dark and wait....
foolishly i took the QB advisors advice to disconnect the account (again!!! i made the same mistake last year) .Then, of course you cant reconnect it because QB cant communicate with Tesco.
However at least i know you can enter manually. If you dont already know this: Get your tesco statement up in a browser and open QB in another tab alongside. Then in QB you'll find your tesco account listed by the name you gave it in the 'Chart of Accounts' In the Accounting tab on the left of the QB home page. If you click on the account in the list itll open with an option top left to 'add expense'. Then you simply copy and paste the memo details from the credit card tab and save. Total pain but keeps vat up to date.
Good luck with this. For me all QB want to do is message via Twitter despite me giving them my email address. I’m not tweeting messages when I’ve been asked for my email. Maybe I’m getting old, isn’t email the main method of communication these days?
Thanks for bringing this situation to our attention.
I know it took time for us to sort everything out with regards to this issue. We really do appreciate your cooperation and patience while we are working on it.
Due to changes to Tesco Bank's website we are still experiencing errors when adding new account or updating existing account in QuickBooks.
Our banking engineers are actively working on the fix. While we're working on this, it would be best to get in touch with our Customer Care Team. They can add you to the list of affected users.
To contact us, here’s how:
When we have more information about the status of this issue, we will update you. We will send the updates on your email address associated with your Intuit account. As a workaround you can import transactions from CSV in the meantime.
I appreciate your patience on this. Please let me know if you need anything else, I’m always here to help. Take care.
