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.
When you know the recipient’s name, sign it “Sincerely yours” or just “Sincerely”, or in the US “Yours truly” is acceptable. Don’t try anything more cutesy or friendly unless a) you know the recipient quite well and are certain you can be informal without seeming disrespectful, or b) you have a “trademark” letter ending that’s part of your public persona (and the talent and popularity to pull it off). Signature and printed name: Signing your name is a minimal assurance that you stand behind what was written.
