Locate and click on the "Settings" or "Gear" icon typically found in the upper-right corner of the screen. This will open a dropdown menu with various options.

From the dropdown menu, choose the "Manage Users" or similar option. This will lead you to the user management page where you can add and manage different types of users.

On the user management page, look for the "Invite Accountant" option. Click on it to initiate the process of adding an accountant user to your QuickBooks Online account.
