The SFM staff is friendly and professional, I got very good personal care. Although in the beginning I had some difficulties to be assigned to a Corporate Service Officer afterwards everything was quick and smooth. I will continue to use their services and I will recommend their service to anybody interested in offshore services.

despite that the provide the service at the end of the day, however, there is significant delay and lack of prompt communication from SFM side.
also i have notices that there is a lack of coronation between SFM members, i have been been asked several times to submit documents already at their end, simply because i'm dealing with different persons.
