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.

Overall I considered the service very good and if I need to create another off-shore company I will use SFM services again.
The only small glitch was that the company was created with only one share of one dollar value. As I needed a higher capital that took some extra time and extra money. But it was a particular situation related to my personal needs.

It is good and easy to work with SFM team as you can always get in touch with them when there is an issue or questions. I also visited their office for twice, it is a serious company with a professional team. Thanks to Ms. Zehra as she is handling my account since the beginning.

I am satisfied with the services provided by SFM Offshore. I think however that the services could be improved by better advice on the choice of the country where to locate your company.
