SFM Corporate Services is a Dubai-headquartered financial and corporate services firm specializing in offshore company formation.[1] The firm was founded in Geneva, Switzerland[2] but now has its headquarters in Dubai with additional offices in Seychelles, Hong Kong, and others.[3][4]

History[edit]

SFM was founded in 2006 in Geneva, Switzerland.[1][3] By 2011, the firm had opened offices in Seychelles (2009) and Hong Kong (2010)[5] and was helping create onshore and offshore companies around the world. Prominent locations for these offshore companies included Seychelles and Cyprus.[3] By 2012, SFM was forming companies in 15 different jurisdictions.[5] In 2013, the company moved its headquarters to Dubai. There, the company continued to offer services like international tax planning and corporate structuring (among others).[1] In April 2015, SFM collaborated with officials from the Ras al-Khaimah emirate on a roadshow in Geneva.[6] SFM is a member of the International Tax Planning Association and the International Financial Management Association.[2][4]

SFM acts as a resident agent in order to register companies in onshore and offshore jurisdictions.[7] Most of SFM's services are provided online through its different websites, "Dubaicompany" or "SFM Offshore."[1]
