FAQ

What is a Harness Tax Advisor?

A Harness Tax Advisor (HTA for short) is a firm powered by the Harness Tax platform.

There’s more to unpack there, so let’s go a little deeper. A “firm” can be a solo practitioner, a small practice, or a multi-partner firm providing tax planning and compliance services. These firms have expertise working with equity compensation, often focusing on founders, early employees, and investors in growing businesses.

What does it mean to be powered by Harness Tax? Simply put: We provide resources for you to scale, while you maintain control of all major business decisions.

The Harness Tax platform:

  • Integrated technology: Our technology streamlines your business processes and enhances the experience for you and your clients
  • Talented, supportive team: We’ll support you with administrative tasks, tax preparation, and tax planning, so you can focus on your clients and grow your business
  • Grow your client base: We’ll help you strategically expand your client base by sending you clients that fit your desired profile and providing the resources to help you increase your win rate with other high-value prospects.
  • Advisor network: Become a member of a growing community of leading advisors sharing knowledge and best practices
  • Enhanced resources: Benefit from Harness’ curated events, network of advisers and best-in-class company resources (e.g. former Head of the IRS, Chief Security Officer, legal resources, etc)

How is Harness Tax different than other tax firms?

We’re not a traditional tax firm. We’re a platform that enables you to grow your practice and deliver exceptional services. We believe Harness Tax Advisors should own and control all the major business decisions of their practice — from the clients you work with to the pricing you offer.

What is the Harness Tax Advisor experience like?

You get to focus on the work that you enjoy. As a Harness Tax Advisor, you’ll have the freedom to build your practice while receiving resources and support.

You own 100% of your business and leverage the technology and optimized processes of the Harness Tax platform. This lets you focus on higher-value services for your clients. We’ll elevate your clients’ experience by making it easier for them to share information with you, and our team will handle time-consuming administrative tasks.

You’ll also join the Harness Tax Advisor community, where you can network and collaborate with other advisors to share ideas, best practices, and provide support on client issues. We’ll give you tools to meet virtually and create opportunities to meet other advisors in person.

I operate my own firm. Why should I join Harness Tax?

This is the question we hear most often. You already have a business, so what’s in it for you?

It’s an easy answer for us: Becoming a Harness Tax Advisor helps you reach your goals and spend your time in areas that add the most value to your clients. Whether it’s growing revenue, hiring, or keeping up with the latest technology — we can help. The Harness Tax platform lets you focus on your clients and your business.

I’m currently working for another firm. Can I be a Harness Tax Advisor?

Absolutely. If you aspire to own your own practice, though perhaps have been apprehensive about matching (or exceeding) the resources of your current firm, Harness Tax is the turn-key solution for you.

We’re looking for exceptional, client-focused tax advisors that have experience working with founders, business owners, early employees, and investors of growing businesses.

We’ll provide you the resources that you’d expect from a larger firm, while you control how you grow your own practice. The Harness Tax platform lets you minimize stress, create a work-life balance you desire, and enjoy the work you do.
