The services of SFM offshore where very satisfactory. I have used their service to set up acompany in the Seychelle and its bank account in Mauritius .SFM has always been very proactive and opened both my company and bank accounts in acceptable deadlines. I can only recommend to work with them because they have always been fair, polite and responsive and most importantly, delivered what I paid for.

Excellent choice
12-Jan-2015
When I initially took on SFM, I though the process would take 2-3 days, this was quoted in their website for registration in BVI. I started the ball rolling on the 15th of April and it is only recently that I have been told the Registration is complete. A lot of this due to my working abroad and my wife also being a director, which has delayed document signings and submission.

There was a lot of documentation to sign and provide. When I thought it was all done I was presented with more paper work. I find it very hard to believe that to form a company in a few days is possible in the best of circumstance.

However my company is now formed and I have a bank account with a bank recommended by SFM. They leave quite a bit to be desired, but then that is internet banking.

I think your selection of 4 catagories is not good as I would not say they were 'Poor' but I would also not describe them as 'Good' either. A ranking of 1 -10 would be a farer way of evaluation simplistically, in that case I would give them a 6 out of 10

The offshore registration transaction was pretty straight forward. What should have been a similarly simple follow up bank account setup became a convoluted process bogged down by compliance red tap. SFM persevered through months of paper work to get the job done. Really quite impressed.
