Cyprus Company
Good to Know
Following the Cypriot economic crisis of 2012-2013, Cyprus’ economy is steadily recovering. In 2014, the Cypriot economy continued to exceed expectations due to the resilience of key sectors of its economy, such as financial services, tourism, and business services. In the second quarter of 2015, the Cypriot economy recorded growth for a second consecutive quarter — a significant development that confirms that the economy is well on the road to recovery as well as its positive prospects. In September 2015, Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services raised its rating on Cyprus by one notch saying the country’s economic and budgetary performance has exceeded its expectations.

This is the second time I have used SFM and despite the first time did not end to be a positive experience I immediately perceived the potentiality of the organization. And in fact this time they really made all the possible effort to make it happen and I had to admit with satisfaction the staff really behaved professionally and sharply. Their worldwide presence facilitates greatly the job compared to other organizations which require to use sub-suppliers jeopardizing and putting at risk the process.
For sure I would recommend SFM and I will recommend SFM to all the people in need of this kind of services. I cannot talk for the whole staff in SFM but for sure the officers and personnel managed my dossier really matched my expectations. Good Job!

this was my only experience with opening an offshore company so i cannot compare it with anything else. in general im satisfied and the job got done rather smoothly despite my delays in providing the needed documents due mainly to the difficult bureaucracy in the country where i do business.
i always got fast answers to my questions, but they were not always so clear,so i would suggest is that the personnel in charge of communicate with the customers would speak more down-to-earth and less technical terminology when dealing with customers. sometimes it was hard to understand what i was asked to do and which documents i was asked to submit, as i sell diving for a living and have no corporate experience.
