English term or phrase:Hold closely corporation
Dentro de instrucciones de inmobiliaria a delegados. La frase dice: If corporation is closely held, have principal owners signed indiviadually?
Explanation: Closely held corporation: es una empresa con muy pocos accionistas y normalmente administrada por (el)los pocos accionista(s) que tiene(n) el control mayoritario. Sus acciones, o no se comercializan en la bolsa o en muy poco volumen, y casi nunca los accionistas mayoritarios venden para evitar perder el control.
Hope it helps.
Explanation: 'closely held' and 'family held' may be sometimes synonymous. These companies can be or not be incorporated. They don't trade at public stock exchanges. But they are under strictly private control. They aren't necessarily small businesses. There are some large corporations which are privately held, like Chamberlain, whose corporate officers are a few family members.
empresa cerrada (Varo y Hughes) o compania cerrada (Deusto)s (Tom West)
Explanation: Para America, propondria algo distinto como empresa de pocos accionistas (Orellana) o sociedad de pocos accionistas (Tom West); sin embargo, veo que radicas en Espana, y supongo que tu publico lector es el espanol. Asi pues, sugiero empresa cerrada --termino mas moderno de Alacaraz Varo y Hughes-- o compania cerrada, diccionario financiero de Deusto. El accionariado de esta clase de sociedad es de caracter limitado conforme a la legislacion fiscal de USA.

Explanation: As a consultant, I'm sure many people wouldn't recognize the selected answer. That lexicon sounds alien to the people in the field. When we talk about private or public corporations, we understand well enough, regardless of how closely held they are.
