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 !

The agent assisting me (Zehra Fattah) displayed great commitment and provided me with excellent service throughout the process.
We faced many challenges i.e. my remote work location with limited IT connectivity and postal infrastructure, frequent travels between countries, different time zones etc but both of us persevered.
I can suggest to SFM that a personilsed document be sent to each client after the initial contact has been made outlining all the requirements and documentation that will be needed to complete the process. This should help the client understand the process better and help him/her and their SFM agent to track outstanding documents throughout the process. At times the sheer volume of documents requested became overwhelming however Zehra keep motivating and encouraging me. THANK YOU
