    So there we go...
    New security details. Account now linked. A small victory as we crash toward the end of another week on the bench.

    The only issue I have is that the HSBC OB feed (at circa 08:00 give or take 30mins) is based on yesterday’s end of day balance position. Of course that makes sense, but I previously uploaded “this morning’s” transactions at circa 08:30 each morning’s and then they were reconciled that day.

    With the OB feed I have to wait a day.

    It’s no big deal, just reminds me of a big issue we had when I worked at a bank and we moved their banking transactions feed from batch to real-time and the mess it caused in reverse!

    Just had an email today from FreeAgent support that their 3rd party provider, Yodlee, are now no longer supporting my bank feed with the Coop.

    Had this issue since June and am getting no help so seriously considering changing everything now. Accountant recommendations that use a software package like FreeAgent but isn't FreeAgent but can still do bank feeds with the Coop?

    Is Quickbooks any good?

    You'll probably find most online accounting providers moving away from Yodlee in favour of open banking feeds - I have a suspicion they may be forced to. I know Yodlee are reputable but let's face it, their "hand over your login details and we'll screen scrape" approach has always been a bit dodgy.

    I'd second the advice above - if your bank has dropped the ball in rolling out open banking feeds, switch to one that has or supports direct integration using the FreeAgent API (like Starling).

    Why not swap to an business account that has open banking support?

    If your iPhone doesn't work with the ball and twine you are using, why replace the modern tech and keep the legacy kit?
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius
