The service provided by SFM to me was simply excellent. Very good value for price paid. Fast Service. Exquisite. Solve all your questions with straight answers. Monitored throughout the process of the application to the end and also in my own language.

Overall the service is ok. Not above average though. The person that handled my business was available most of the time. The length of time that took though to make all arrangements needs to improve.
01-Oct-2014
I believe the service is good. However, there are some points that can improve, including:
- Speed ​​in the process;
- When there are changes in the incorporations should always be updated, so that means there is conflicting information that exists on the website or when communicating by mail;
- Should always provide feedback as to why the time-consuming process, and not the client to constantly contact to know the current situation;
- Streamline the process.

Todo muy correcto y muy claro. Saben lo que hacen. Lo único es que los plazos de creación de la sociedad no son tan rápidos. Requieren uno o dos meses. Pero todo lo demás es perfecto. Repetiré con SFM si tengo que volver a realizar otra gestión.

Bonjour,
C'est en toute honnêteté que je peux témoigner de l'efficacité de la gestion de mes deux sociétés par SFM, et ce depuis 5 ans.
En plus d'un accueil très cordial et réactif, j'apprécie fortement la qualité d'écoute et de compréhension face à mes demandes.
Merci pour votre patience à mon égard, et pour tous vos conseils qui font qu'aujourd'hui j'ai un montage UK clair, simple et sécurisé.
