You can only import 90 days of historical transactions when re-authenticating your bank feed. If you need more historic data you’ll need to manually import transactions into Xero. If your existing bank feed is compliant under the new requirements, you don’t need to change the connection. If you miss the deadline, your existing bank feed will stop importing transactions into Xero and you will lose the benefits of having a bank connection, such as easy bank reconciliation. The new bank feeds will be made available in stages, so more feeds will become available over the coming months – keep an eye out on your Xero dashboard to see when you can switch. You’ll be able to connect your bank accounts to Xero before 14 March 2020 for supported banks and account types.

FNB is through Yodlee, so you can refresh the feeds as you like. If you’re not sure what you’ve got or you feel it’s not working properly, drop an email to and the bank feed experts will take a look for you. Those through the bank feed service work through a different system and often need to be manually refreshed especially if there are login credentials needing to be confirmed each time . I have just started the trial version and when I try to add a bank account the furthest I can get is to add my bank name Bendigo Bank and add my account name and then it just hangs there doing nothing. I have a new client converted with movemybooks, cannot set up bank feed, click on get bank feed and it hangs for ever and then does nothing at all. Xero support have said that we have the wrong login details, we haven;t even got that far.

Automatic Bank Feeds
If your bank doesn’t offer direct bank feeds to Xero yet, let us know and we’ll try and make it happen. In the meantime, you can get your transactions into Xero by setting up a Yodlee feed or importing your statements.
Whilst it’s a little extra admin, this is a new standard under Open Banking. Currently, Yodlee feeds with a bank based outside of the UK, and in the EU, will stop importing transactions into Xero from 14 September 2019. From this point on, customers can manually import transactions into Xero to keep their accounts up-to-date and reconciled. Xero is registered by the Financial Conduct Authority as an Account Information Service Provider , which means we are authorised to access our customers’ bank account information when they ask us to. As an AISP we have ‘read-only’ access to bank account information, so we are simply retrieving a customer’s bank transaction data to provide an automated feed of transactions into Xero.

You can also select a date from which to start importing transactions. If you do not want to specify a date and import transactions as far back as Xero will allow, leave the date box empty and check the All available transactions radio button.
Stripe + Xero
Starling for Business is a different kind of business bank account. Because it’s direct from the bank, there’s a much lower risk of duplicates or missing data. I understand they are routed directly rather than via Yodlee. Our experience with the latter is that they update roughly once per day around mid-morning .
Hi @Withheld, at present it is just current (day-to-day) business transactional accounts that are supported via premium feeds. We continue to talk with RBS about the introduction of more feed types. Often within banks different account types are supported by different IT systems, so it can sometimes be complicated to provide support for different account types. That’s all you need to do to activate a bank feed in Xero. You should now be taken back to the main Bank Account page. Here you should see a message telling you that Xero is loading your transactions and that you will receive a notification when they are ready. At some point in the next day or two, you should see the first lot of transactions in Xero for your bank account.
If you use Stripe outside of Xero invoices but would like to reconcile Stripe payments, such as payments from an online store or CRM tool, you can connect the Stripe bank feed.

I’d pay £3.50 a month if that covered every account I have with RBS, but not £3.50 for each of them. I’d also miss being able to refresh the bank feed on demand, which is possible with Yodlee and not, it seems, with the direct feed. We have been perfectly happy with the existing Natwest feed, no dropped or duplicated transactions and the facilty to refresh as needed.
Hubdoc + Xero
