I also get the exact same error.
I have used three different browsers and the Quickbooks app and still cannot update my HMRC PAYE reference number, because of this I am now late in subitting my very first payroll through Quickbooks - Never had a single issue like this for the whole 5 years of using 121CloudPayroll and makes me think I made a huge mistake moving to Quickbooks.
Please get this sorted ASAP!

I have come across this issue now as I'm setting up payroll for the first time.
What I have noticed is that the example Quickbooks Online gives for the Accounts Office reference number ends with a letter but my reference doesn't end with a letter.

Hello Pennytranter1, thanks for posting on this thread, does your details match what HMRC have sent to you? so it is normally 4 things that need to be correct which are the PAYE, Office ref, user ID and password. Please can you check all 4 of those as well. Thanks
All the information is right - I've been on the HMRC portal to check that the login details and reference numbers are correct.
I'm not sure what else I can check but if all else fails, I'll have to ring Customer Services.
