I am trying to find a single word that encompasses natural persons and juridical persons. But must be in the context of comercial transactions.
So, for example, Maria buys a computer from Amazon.com. Maria is the customer and is a natural person, in the order side, Amazon is the seller and is a Juridical person.
From Wikipedia, a Party is a person or group of persons that compose a single entity. But this is in the law context.
From the next phrases, which is more correct in a commercial/fiscal context?:
- Here is a list of parties that have paid more taxes.
- Here is a list of persons that have paid more taxes.
So, my final question is:
Can I use the word Party/Parties to describe any kind of person (legal/natural)? Or is it better to just use Person/Persons?
Definition of a natural and juridical person in Wikipedia.
In jurisprudence, a natural person is a person (in legal meaning, i.e., one who has its own legal personality) that is an individual human being,
A juridical person is a non-human legal entity, in other words any organization that is not a single natural person
Update 2. Where I want to use the word party?
First, I am not writing a contract.
I have a list of persons (humans) and companies, where any of then can be part of a comercial transactions and I need to give a name to that list. But the name must be a single word.
I was thinking to add the name taxpayer, but not all of them pay taxes (This list is not necessarily of peoples and companies from the US).
