Spanish to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s) / tender document
Spanish term or phrase:a nombre y por cuenta propia
I know there is a set expression for this, I just can't put the right words in the right order and can't find it in the glossary.This is one of the requirements stipulated in a Mexican tender document:
"Manifestación escrita, bajo protesta de decir verdad, en cuanto a que los Interesados actúan a nombre y por cuenta propia."
'Acting on their own behalf' or 'in their own interest' is close, but does that cover it all? I'm sure there's an exact, accepted translation, but can't put my finger on it.
