Parts of a Business Letter. Business Letter is a letter which is used by organizations to communicate in a professional way with customers, other companies, clients, shareholders, investors, etc. Business letter uses formal language and a specific format.
There is a tendency to think that the often arbitrary rules of letter writing don’t really matter, that as long as your recipient can work out what you’re saying, that’s good enough. This shows a great deal of disrespect for your recipient, though, and for your own ideas. It suggests that a) your reader’s time isn’t valuable enough for you to write clearly and efficiently, and b) that you don’t particularly care about the content of your letter.
