“I don’t usually give 5/5 ratings but for Firm24 I can’t resist. Their prices are extremely competitive. We ran a 20 company comparison before contacting them and they had some of the most affordable pricing. After we signed with them we faced no bad surprises or hidden costs. Communication is also perfect, we get answers when we send emails, replies to our phone calls, clear instructions, Skype calls when we needed them in the beginning and most of all they are patient and willing to take the time to explain things clearly. We also get updates and reminders when we forget to send them important information and updates. I would and have recommended their services to friends and fellow entrepreneurs.”

“Before I started my BV I still had questions regarding the whole process of starting a BV. When I contacted Firm24, they gave me personal service including good tips and points of attention. Next to that they had a very clear work process and well-connected notaries. I will definitely recommend Firm24.”
