EXAMPLE OF BUSINESS LETTER
PARTS OF BUSINESS LETTER
Most professional business letters include a letterhead which is comprised of your name, address, phone number, and email address.
The date should be the day on which you completed the letter, written in standard U.S. format (eg. October 28, 2017). It should be written underneath the letterhead, or underneath the address on the top left of the page.
Write the recipient’s company name, address and zip code. Include a job title if appropriate on the top left side underneath the date.
4. The Greeting
Also called the salutation. The type of salutation depends on your relationship with the recipient. It normally begins with the word "Dear" and always includes the person's last name.
5. The Body Paragraphs
The body is where you explain why you’re writing. It’s the main part of the business letter. Make sure the receiver knows who you are and why you are writing.
6. The Complimentary Close
This short, polite closing ends always with a comma. It is either at the left margin or its left edge is in the center, depending on the Business Letter Style that you use. It begins at the same column the heading does. Here are some examples:
- Yours truly,
- Sincerely yours,
- Respectfully yours,
- Best wishes,
7. Signature and Writer’s identification
The signature is the last part of the letter. You should sign your first and last names. The signature line may include a second line for a title, if appropriate. The signature should start directly above the first letter of the signature line in the space between the close and the signature line.
8. Initials, Enclosures, Copies
Initials are to be included if someone other than the writer types the letter. If you include other material in the letter, put 'Enclosure', 'Enc.', or ' Encs. ', as appropriate, two lines below the last entry. Include a cc: if you are sending copies of the letter to someone else.
