You can add a new one by pressing Add Company –button.

Add the name of a new company, select correct company type and give the starting date:

Company type defines the chart of accounts to be used for the company and it cannot be changed afterwards. The last option on the list “Universal template” is the largest set of accounts and it is applicable for all business forms e.g. limited liabilities, sole proprietorships, limited and general partnerships as well as for cooperatives.

MeritAktiva offers also shorter versions of charts of accounts for limited liabilities and cooperatives which is called “Business”. ”Self-employed” is applicable for sole proprietorships and partnerships. “Apartments union” version is designed for housing companies and “Non-Profit” for associations.

Note that the dates can be entered without dots. Starting date is the date when you start doing accounting for a company in MeritAktiva. If you start the bookkeeping from the beginning of the year, enter starting date e.g. 01.01.2019.

Save

These basic settings, name and chosen chart of accounts, cannot be changed. If you anyhow want to change you must create a new company, select the type you wish and delete the wrong one. Company name can be changed in Settings / Company name.

  1. Enter the company data: Registration number, VAT number and other information. Define also if the company is VAT liable or not and choose the filing period for VAT (month, quarter or year). Define here also amortization period (how often depreciations will be booked). If you choose cash basis for VAT filings remember to adjust it to accrual basis in the financial closing (cash basis allowed for companies having turnover less than 500 000€). In Pro and Premium versions you can utilize invoice approval feature which should be activated on this page.

You may add and modify this information later by choosing:

Settings > Company data > Company data.

Cash accounts will start from number 1900, second cash 1901 and so forth.

You can modify chart of accounts via: Settings > Finance settings > Chart of Accounts

In case you need e.g. multiple purchase accounts, you can add, modify or delete accounts based on your company’s needs.

You may also set an account as “Not active” if you do not need it right now (first left column). If this option has been chosen the account cannot be used and will not appear e.g. when entering opening balances. If you need the account later you just remove the tick and start using it.

Importing data

If you want to transfer data from your previous accounting system (e.g. customer, vendor, or product/article master data) to MeritAktiva, you can do it via Settings > Finance Settings > Data Import. Data can be transferred from another MeritAktiva version or from any other accounting program. Data should be in Excel spreadsheet form.

Further instructions can be found in menu: Settings > Finance Settings > Data Import. Please remove Verohallinto (Tax Administration) from the list of vendors since system has created it by default.

Once you have imported customer and vendor master data you can start using them for invoicing and billing purposes.

Product master data can be transferred only for stock keeping units, i.e. product type to be ”Stock item”. These type of products will be inventory tracked. Remove all unnecessary articles from the data before importing it. The headers in the Excel file should be in certain order (see more information Settings > Finance Settings > Data Import). Product master data import will not transfer the number of units data.

Financial Years

The default financial year is a calendar year. If company’s financial year is different you may change it in: Settings > Finance Settings > Financial Years.

Click the row you want to change and enter the correct start and end dates, and save. If the year has been ticked as ”Active” you can add transactions to the period. Once the financial year has been closed you should untick the box which prevents all changes to be made to the closed year, (choose the year by clicking it > Edit (or just double-click) > untick the box).


Save.

Remove all unnecessary years by clicking the row and choose Delete or by pressing the X in the end of the row.

You may also close the periods within a year by restricting updates for that specific month. “Saving in allowed period” should be defined accordingly. E.g. if accounting for January 2018 has been finalized you can add date 1.2.2018, and the program does not allow any changes to the periods prior to this date. You may change this once you have finalized the accounting for the next month.


Save.

Entering opening balances

In case you start doing accounting for a newly established company the opening balances are not applicable but you can start directly recording normal transactions (sales, purchases, payments, general ledger etc.).

In case the company has had business activity and accounting information available up to certain date, the opening balances should be entered to all accounts in: Settings > Finance Settings > Opening balances. You can issue sales invoice and record purchase invoices first and only later update the opening balances.

The date of the opening balances should be the last day of the prior financial year. For example if you start using MeritAktiva on 1st of January 2018, the date for the opening balances should be 31.12.2017.

Enter the opening balances for general ledger accounts (default option on the page) just updating debit or credit amounts. In the bottom of the page you may see the totals for debit and credit entries. You cannot save the balances if total debit does not equal total credit. The profit for the previous financial year should not be entered but the system calculates it automatically based on the income and expense account balances.

Because Accounts Receivable (account 1701) and Accounts Payable (account 2760) as well as Non-current assets (or Fixed assets) are presented only as totals in the opening balances, you should enter each open sales invoice and purchase invoice separately by customer/vendor by using menus Invoices and Bills. Same applies for the items belonging to non-current assets (option Fixed asset).

Accounts receivable:

Accounts payable:

The program controls and compares the total amount of invoices/bills recorded to the general ledger balance (A/R, A/P) and informs if there is a difference.

There are additional options to enter debts/claims from/to employees. Also advances received from customer and advances paid to vendors can be detailed under own options. Last option on the right is for non-current assets details.

VAT Payable balance should be entered to the account 2939 VAT payable, net,

and VAT Receivable balance to the account 1763 VAT receivable.

Opening balances of non-current assets (aka Fixed assets):

Before entering the details of opening fixed assets check the categories available for them in Fixed Asset Group option: Settings > Dimensions > Fixed Asset Group and categorize your assets accordingly into these classes.

Fixed asset accounts and groups should be same in GL chart of accounts and in the fixed asset groups. Fixed asset groups can be edited and new groups can be added.

Give the original total purchase cost and total accumulated depreciation values to all tangible and intangible assets in the opening balances, e.g. for Plant and Equipment and total purchase cost debit to account 1201 and accumulated depreciation credit to account 1202. The net book value will be then the net of these two accounts. In the picture below e.g. the net book value of Plant and Equipment is 40 000 € and Vehicles 3 000 €.

In order to be able to use MeritAktiva for the future depreciations (and because GL accounts carry only total asset and depreciation values) give also details for each separate asset by entering them in Settings > Finance Settings > Opening balances > option Fixed Asset.

Start by giving a name for the row (can be whatever since it will be updated in the next window) and in the field ”Tracking number” choose Add.

In a new window give a specific name of the asset, tracking number you use, and choose the correct asset group, depreciation method and depreciation rate as well as other information if you like. Press Add.

Fill in now the remaining information to the previous window:

Purchase price – original purchase cost of the asset

Purchase date – original date of purchase of the asset

Depreciation start date – date from which MeritAktiva should start to calculate and record depreciation for the assets, e.g. 1.1.2018 (the interval for depreciation was given in the company settings).

Residual value – net book value of the asset at the time when it was added to MeritAktiva (purchase cost minus accumulated depreciation).

Save and add (press New Line) all fixed assets in the same way to the opening balance section.

Save

Note! During the ongoing year new fixed assets should be added to fixed asset register via Purchases > Bills > New bill and ticking the box “Asset purchase”. See more in section 12. Recording Purchase Invoices. Same applies to the sales of fixed assets – new invoice to be issued in Sales > Invoices > New invoice and option ”Asset sale” to be chosen.

Opening balances for Articles (stock-keeping units)

Since you can import the article master data directly from other system but not the unit information this should be entered manually to MeritAktiva (Stock > Stock Transactions, add New stock transaction). The date is the following date after the date of the opening balances. E.g. if opening balance date was 31.12.2017, the stock transaction will be entered on 1.1.2018. The type of the transaction is “Incoming”. Add all articles and their quantities one after another and choose the account 1531 Inventories.

These Incoming –transactions are creating entries which does not have any value effect:

D 1531 Inventories

C 1531 Inventories

since the value of the inventory was entered as an opening balance to GL account

1531 Inventories.

In PRO- and Premium-program versions there is a possibility to use various stock locations. You may add a new stock location in: Settings > Dimensions > Stock, add New stock. If there are articles in various locations the opening quantities should be entered to each locations separately.

Save

Check the settings for Sales invoices before issuing an invoice

The settings for Sales invoices can be found in Settings > General settings > Invoice settings. You can define e.g. rounding rule for the invoices, interest rate for delayed payments, number sequence and default payment terms (in days) as well as add logo and the name of the sender. Furthermore, you can choose if you want to print also delivery note or if the name of the contact person should be shown on the invoice.

Sole proprietorships and Partnerships: if any business expenses or income have been paid from/to the personal funds of the owner/partner, they should be recorded via General Journal entry (in Finance menu). Account to be used is then Private accounts under Equity section in the CoA.

Cash payments work in a similar way as bank payments.

Prepayments

In the Payment function you may enter Prepayment paid by a customer or paid to a vendor in case there has been no invoice issued or bill received yet i.e. the payment transaction will be keyed in prior to invoice or bill. The normal payment allocation to unpaid invoice/bill is not possible in such a case. The system records the payment as a prepayment in the customer’s and vendor’s account. In accounting the following entry will be created (payment received from a customer): D Bank, C Advances received, and for payment to vendor accordingly: D Advances paid, C Bank.

If the sales invoice will be issued during the same month as the payment was received, prepayment should be allocated in: Payments > Payments > Net settlement of customers and vendors > +New payment.

Vendor prepayments will be allocated to a bill in the same way in: Payments > Payments > Net settlement of customers and vendors > +New payment.
