I am very happy with the way SFM operates. I came to them in order to have a new company incorporated. They have advised me about the best options available and were able to set up the company within a couple of days. I also paid for a bank account with that company and they were very helpful in that regard as well. They set up the meetings with the bank and I was able to go there in person and sort everything out much faster than normal. All in all, I would recommend SFM if you want to have a new company incorporated.

SFM offered us very stable ,reliable and professional service that we highly recommend to anyone interested to open a company online. We were aware that establishing your business online without face to face communication has many disadvantages,but cooperating with SFM for that matter made us completely relaxed and secure that everything is being handled in most professional and reliable manner.
Moreover, the guidance of the staff,their constant support and kindness made the process very easy,so that they swiftly managed to establish our business that we still run today successfully.
We still use SFM services for all that we need as we progress in our business and we would not change SFM for anything!!!
Our sincere gratitude to SFM for being our best online business service !
