What a pleasure dealing with Govchain! Our company registration took 48 hours!! Stefan & Bo were so great to work with, they reply to emails almost immediately, the online chat was also very responsive and both were extremely helpful. Their rates are very affordable, I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone wanting to register a new business or even ask advice.
