English to Spanish translations [PRO] Law: Contract(s)
English term or phrase:to gross up
Any moneys payable under this Agreement shall be paid without deduction or withholding, except where required by law, in which event payments shall be grossed up to ensure that the recipient receives the same net amount as it would receive in the absence of such deduction or withholding.

Explanation: La idea es ésa; sin embargo, en México también prefieren que se quede el término en inglés, porque es algo que, por lo general, ya se conoce así en el medio debido a que no hay un término específico en español que abarque toda la idea (y que de paso no se oiga tan "feo").
