I have established my offshore company International Business Enterprises through SFM in Dubai.
The SFM team in Dubai is very professional and they know the Offshore Business inside out. I was very well briefed on the Offshore Business by the SFM team.
The communication is very good; they always keep you up to date with regards to the registration process.
It is nice to have such a competent team on your side.
