In the next step, your accountant will have to click on the signing-in link and create a user id for signing in for the first time. They can also continue with their existing accounts on Intuit business services.

In case you are facing some issues while inviting the accountant by following the above steps, you can log in to QuickBooks online using a private browser and add or invite your accountant. Hopefully, you will be successful and you can go back to your regular browser and clear the cache storage and then log in. The display issue in the QuickBooks happens due to the piled-up cache files in the browser.
If your accountant does not receive the invitation link, you can ask them to check the invitation in the spam folder. Or it might happen that you have entered the email address incorrectly in the details of the accountant. If both of these points are ok, you can check that maybe your accountant’s server is blocking the email.
Once you check all the relevant checkpoints, you can resend the invitation to your accountants by clicking on the setting (gear icon) and then click on manage users, then you need to select the accountant that you want to invite again and resend the invite in the action column.
