My quickbooks looks different

I have just signed up to QBO and every time I look up how to do certain things the tutorials all show a different looking version than mine. I have very limited options in the settings menu as shown in the screenshot. Is this because I have the self employed version?

Hi there, Baron.


I understand how important it is to use the right QuickBooks version so that it looks the way you want. I'm here to assist you with your concern today. 


Based on the screenshot you provided, I can see that you're using the QuickBooks Self-Employed UK version. If you want to use QuickBooks Online UK, you'll need to have suitable subscriptions for QBO UK. Let me walk you through the correct website for browsing QBO UK subscriptions.
