The SFM has an excellent service and fast response.
The most surprising was a manager in my local language, portuguese.

Everyone should work with SFM!

Very Gooood!

Rita Coelho has been wonderful. All staff that I dealt with have been very kind. It is not an easy thing to open a corporation anymore. If you are going to do so, use sfm. I tried others. And getting bank accounts open is worse than getting a root canal. Let your sfm agent help you. Thanks for making my experience successful. Theodore Baroody

The service was professional, however it took a bit too long to get quick answers to important questions. A push from my side was always necessary in order to get feedback. But all in all I was satisfied and I will recommend SFM. Michael Rennschmied
