The company has been opened in no time. Bank account is taking a while, but not SFM's fault.
At the end of the day I can say I'm happy with the service provided.
23-Aug-2018
I received above excellent service from day 1 when I placed an order online, and was kept up to date as the process went on, never felt unsure of anything. Mafalda went out of her way to provide me with all the facts I needed before opening a bank account and the account was opened and active in a matter of days. I would recommend SFM any time and will definitely be making use of their service again in the near future. Thanks for everything
