The overall feedback is a very good one. I was pleased with how smooth the incorporation process went and the way I have been assisted.
Specifically, I believe that my Client Relationship Manager has understood my requirements, my background and what is the purpose of the company. Also, communication - a highly important point - was very good with my Client Relationship manager as I was offered additional details when I had doubts, I was explained clearly what documents are required from me and I was always informed in what stage the incorporation process is in. Also the replies from the Client Relationship manager were always on time and very professional.
