Mobile: How to e-sign documents

Electronic signatures, recognized by law in many countries (including the US, Canada, and Europe) since the early 2000s, are as valid as traditional paper signatures. No need to visit your accountant's office or send documents via mail—simply sign any document directly on your client portal. In this article, we will explain how.


Attention! QES signatures are not available in the mobile app. Please use the web portal.
