Avoid Trident Trust (or any lawyers working with them), they will waste your time and money.
Personal experience here.

I've used A&P Intertrust (http://www.apintertrust.com/) for incorporating / bank introductions a few times and had very positive experiences with them. They're based in Canada so if you're based in Europe then time zones may be a bit of an issue but apart from that everything's been extremely smooth with them.
Thank you very much, I think I will go with them, I just read their website and have very good deals.
"run with my money" ... Gosh, you are very trusting person!
In my experience you want to avoid all those service companies. Most of them are extremely shady. You certainly don't want a shady company to look at your passport copy or account statements. Look up the yellow pages in your country of choice, research good lawyers and use them. Alternatively, seek advice of senior bankers if you have access to them.
Actually, according to my view, choosing a service agent or a lawyer depends on your intention and plan. For example, if you just want to set up an offshore company and a bank account for your trading business or investment proposal, I guess a service agent is enough as they offer competitive prices compared to lawyers and CPAs. However, if you plan to set up offshore trust and wealth protection or IPO, a lawyer or a CPA is highly recommended.
As for me, I just need a company for trading, therefore I paid co123.cc about USD 450 for setting up a Hong Kong company. It worked fine.
Hope you can make a good decision!
450$ for WHAT exactly? A one-time fee for the founding of a ibc? Or a national company? With/without a bank account? What about the yearly costs of a registered agent? taxes? etc etc etc..
Sorry pal, but we're talking about offshore companies here and you will NEVER get those for 450$
I often incorporate offshore companies (seychelles, hong kong, singapore mostly) and and a 450$ registration fee and 1 year company fee is too low to be true. for HK company is around 700 Euro. You need to visit HK in order to open a bank account. don't do all things remote is a risk of losing control of the bank account.
