When trying to add my TD Business bank account, I get the following error: Something unexpected happened and we couldn't connect to your bank.


Hi there, npolshuk

I’m here to help connect your TD Business bank account to QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE).

Since you’re having an error when trying to add your bank account, let’s make sure first the following things:

  • Use the same user name and password that you use to access the bank account itself.
  • Confirm your security answers with your bank and some of them are case-sensitive.
  • For some banks, the questions and answers need to be in the exact same order as they are listed on your bank's website.
  • There is a valid account in your online banking website which includes the non-zero balance amount and the last 12-month transactions.
  • There should be no prompt to access Terms & Conditions in your online banking website.

To help fix the error, you can try these tips below:

  1. Verify the spelling of your login information.
  2. Try entering your bank’s URL instead.
  3. Search for the name of the issuing bank.
  4. Enter more specific search terms.
  5. Use simple one or two-word terms.

After trying the tips above, you can add the bank account back. Then, let’s do another single account refresh to verify that the error will be resolved. Here’s how to manually refresh the account:

  1. Go to the Gear icon at the upper right.
  2. Select Bank Accounts.
  3. Click Refresh All.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
