About the company

We are all about listening, adapting and helping your business to grow in new ways.

Our story

Our story began 25 years ago, based on accounting and stock managing software that has remained our number one product ever since. It took us years of hard work and commitment to reach the point where we are now, with Merit Aktiva and Merit Palk being the market leaders in Estonia and quickly expanding into foreign markets.

Our users know the value of transparency, convenience and excellent customer service. And we are determined to provide help that will save time, drive better business results and contribute to a thriving economy.

Merit Aktiva and Merit Palk are effective and accessible cloud-based tools for both accountants and small business owners, which facilitate collaboration between these two types of users while keeping the operations simple and secure.

With several new markets on our horizon, we are currently working closely with our subsidiaries in Finland and Poland to offer completely localised versions of our software for both countries. Meanwhile, small businesses all over the world are asking for robust accounting and payroll applications – and we are responding.

Charity

The joy of giving is greater than the joy of receiving.

Apart from the development of business, every company has a social role, which we treat with full responsibility. There are many people in society who need help. We believe that successful companies must help those in need.

Our company is successful, and we are ready to assist those who need it most. We provide help with the primary focus on children and people with disabilities.
