Business Letter Format

There are two common business letter formats, the popular one is the block format, which is easier to use and there is no indentation. Another format is the indented format, which required some indentation. Make sure to use the correct template when writing your formal business letter and make sure everything is in the proper layout. The margin on all sides should be 1-inch, for more details, view the samples below.

    I am a bit confused of how to write letters for application. I am confused of the letters we wrote in our Institutes and the ones posted in your pages but I would like to know more of how to write letters in the latest way of writing and also knowing what languages to use.

    With concern to be green, is it appropriate today to print on both sides of the paper for long letters, or should one always use two sheets? And is there something that should go on page 2 as an identifier?
