We rate our experience with SFM and the SFM employees we dealt with, as EXCELLENT.

We chose SFM from among multiple companies for the following reasons:

1. Professional website, with clear information and data.
2. Competitive pricing.

But that was not enough for us to choose SFM. So, we decided to meet with SFM. Mr Owiss Refaat (Business Development Manager) welcomed us and answered all our questions clearly and transparently, in addition to providing us with additional advice and suggestions as to what could be best for us.

This was our first dealing with a professional SFM employee who knew what he was talking about.

After that meeting, we decided to proceed with SFM.

SFM assigned to us Ms. Myriam Farahoui (Senior Client Relationship Manager) to assist us with the incorporation of our company in Ras Al-Khaimah.

Myriam displayed an excellent combination of professionalism as well as true friendly customer care throughout our communications and during the entire company registration process.

The communication process was excellent. Requirements and processes were being clearly presented to us. Our questions were being answered promptly, and it is important to note that the answers were not rushed out, half answers. Myriam had our best interest in mind. For example, for one of our important questions related to company classification and activity code, she got us the best answer by contacting the authority and getting us their advice and suggestion on what would be best for our company.

Myriam Farahoui: 10/10, 5 Stars *****

SFM: Highly recommended.

Company creation support is fine. However the support to open a bank account is rather poor.
21-May-2020
Very poor experience, I wired money on January 29th. After many emails asking them to send me documents they just delivered just one document (Apostille) on May 19th. Today is May 21st and I still haven't received other documents such as POA and without it I can not do anything. They kept stalling and excusing with Covid 19 why they can not send by DHL !? When I was including supervisor in email communication, there was no any reaction, no replay...my agony with them last now for approx. 4 months and it is not over yet.
Strongly recommend to avoid this company to cooperate with!
