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.
