Peruvian Closely Held Corporation

denuncias de infracción marcaria

The Peruvian Closely Held Corporation must include twenty (20) shareholders, as a maximum. It can be incorporated in such a way that the General Manager would be empowered will full powers in the name of the corporation. This would speed up the management of the enterprise. However, it would provide less supervision on it.

Therefore, the shareholders must appoint a manager, a person of their total trust. Only one way of controlling would be that the manager can be removed from his position and without any explanation from the Board of Directors. Moreover, it has not been registered before the Public Registry of the Securities Market.

If it wishes to incorporate a closely held corporation («Sociedad anónima cerrada») with a Board of Directors, it is only needed the identification data of the manager and managers.
