About the company

We believe that our modern cloud software will help your company develop faster. We prefer an open, simple, and friendly approach.

Our story

Our story began 25 years ago on 18 November 1991. The company formed around the accounting and stock records software created by its founders. Thus, apart from business software this program has been our most important product since day one. Today, after years of steady development, the Merit Aktiva accounting program and Merit Palk salary accounting program are the market leaders in Estonia, and they are quickly expanding foreign markets. Merit Aktiva is used for maintaining the accounting of over 40 000 companies, and Merit Palk is used for the salary accounting of over 10 000 companies.

The things that users of our software value the most are simplicity and convenience of use, as well as excellent customer support. All of this will help you save time on the maintenance of accounting and salary accounting, and to develop your business faster. We believe that we have contributed to the development of the Estonian economy.

Merit Aktiva and Merit Palk are used by both accountants and small business owners. Cooperation between a business owner and an accountant is an increasingly popular trend, and cloud technology makes such work easy and convenient.

We have subsidiaries in Finland and Poland, where we offer software localised for those countries. New countries are awaiting their turn. We are quickly growing in both Finland and Poland, as small companies all over the world need simple-to-use programs of high quality. In Finland we use the same trademark as in Estonia – Merit Aktiva – and in Poland our trademark is 360 Księgowość (“księgowość” means accounting in Polish).
