The progress of my new company was delayed more than I expected.
Always on hand for help and assistance, and helped us no end in the process of incorporating our business, would be very happy to recommend to others.
I have used SFM for company set up and also for company dissolution. I have found them to be efficient and courteous. Sometimes responses involving the local registration authorities have taken some time, but I surmise that this is attributable to the third party involved. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
Experienced professionals and very fast Excellent value for money.
