    1. What is a Private Settlement?

    A Private Settlement is a legal agreement between certain parties that are or were bound by a commercial relationship. This document expresses the will of the parties in which they declare that all obligations have been fulfilled and the relationship has been satisfactorily terminated, or they declare which obligations are still pending and how they intend to be executed. This document is drafted and signed by both parties without the intervention of a public notary.

    2. Is it obligatory to make a Private Settlement?

    3. What information should a Private Settlement include?

    A Private Settlement must include the complete identification of the parties, the date of termination of the relationship, the total amount of amounts outstanding or already paid, the voluntary waiver of any future claims, and the signatures of both parties.

    4. Is it necessary to register the Private Settlement before any entity?
