Fix error 101

Step 1: sign in to your bank's website

Sign in to your bank's website in a new tab or a different browser to see if you can get in without errors.

Step 2: check if your account is active

Your account is considered active if there’s an existing balance or there are transactions from the past 12 months.

If you’re supposed to have an active account but can't sign in to your bank’s website, contact them directly.

Step 3: look for missed prompts

Return to your bank’s website and look for messages that need confirmation (e.g. terms and conditions).

Acknowledge the prompt, then go back and refresh your account in QuickBooks Online.

If the issue persists, sign in to QuickBooks using an incognito or private browser, or try other browser troubleshooting options.
