Thank you for the response, @KERSPI.
I checked the investigations list, and it turns out it's already resolved. We can do troubleshooting steps to fix the connection issue.

You can go back to your regular browser and clear the cache to avoid the error again. If that behavior still exists, I recommend using another browser to get this fixed.
For an option, you can manually upload the transactions in QuickBooks Online from your bank or credit cards.

What specific error did you received when trying to connect HSBC Hong Kong to your QBO? This'll give us an overview of what is happening.
When connecting a multi-currency bank, you'll need to make sure the QuickBooks bank account is also set up for the same currency.
This should be the same bank account you'll select when you're in the connecting process.
We'd appreciate details and screenshots about this concern, too.
