I appreciate you for getting back here in the thread, @PMAWB. I'll help you get this sorted out as soon as possible so you can access your QuickBooks Self-Employed account on your mobile device.


Before anything else, can you tell me more about the error message you've encountered when attempting to access your QBSE account on your mobile phone? This way, I'll be able to provide you with an accurate solution to fix this.


Also, since you've mentioned that you're able to access your account using the web version, know that there isn't any major issue with your account. That said, I'd recommend clearing the temporary data or the app's cache in your phone so you can access your account using the app with a clean slate. I'll be happy to input the steps below so you can proceed. To begin, here's how:


1. Choose the QuickBooks app from the List.
2. Go to Menu ☰.
3. Select Help & Feedback.
4. Look for Refresh Data.
5, Tap Refresh.


If the issue persists after performing the steps, I'd recommend uninstalling and then reinstalling the app to ensure you get the latest version of it.


Additionally, I'll be leaving this article to help you manage invoice payments in QBSE: Create invoices in QuickBooks Self-Employed.
