I can help you get past this error, @cdejesus.

 

Our Engineering Team is aware of this issue and is currently working for a fix.

 

You don't need to worry because I'm here to share a temporary workaround that'll allow you to proceed without the error.

 

Here's how:

  1. Sign in to QBO
  2. Select the Gear Icon, then Manage Users.
  3. Change the URL in the browser to app/legacyusermgt.
  4. This will redirect you to a page where you can delete the expired accountant (if there is).
  5. Then click the Invite Accountant tab.

That should do it. In the meantime, please reach out to our Online Specialist so they can sign you up to receive email updates as soon as they become available. 

 

If you need articles you can use in the future, please refer to the following links below.

How many users can I set up?
