You didn't become a therapist to reconcile your expenses or figure out tax deductions. Heard Bookkeeping and Tax guides your private practice with affordable bookkeeping, one-on-one expert help and tax support so you can get back to seeing clients.

This means no more fiddling around in spreadsheets, overpaying accountants, or guessing your quarterly tax payments. Heard is the only financial platform designed exclusively for mental health professionals.

Just ask Melanie Evans, a Clinical Social Worker from New York: “It's great to have an expert to turn to whenever I have a question related to accounting. Knowing that my bookkeeping and taxes are in good hands, I can really focus on the more clinical parts of my work!”

Most accountants serve a variety of businesses and are too expensive for your practice. That should not stop you from accessing the information you need to be successful as a business owner.

Whether this is your first year in practice, or you are an experienced clinician, Heard bookkeeping and tax helps you manage your practice finances with ease, at a price you can afford. Make 2021 the year that you take charge of your practice finances.
