Letter of Confirmation on Oral Agreement

Sometimes when you are looking for a job or in a corporate meeting, an executive will promise you new work or relocation. Knowing that somebody on a higher level will look after your career lessens your worries, however saying it verbally is not enough. An oral agreement can easily be forgotten. That is why you have to confirm an oral agreement through a formal letter.

A confirmation letter is a formal corporate letter to remind the person about an agreement. It is also used to acknowledge the terms that you both agreed on. State the terms as far as you remembered and allow the person to notify you if there is something needs to be revised.

Attach documents if it is necessary. Be precise and straightforward in making your letter and put it in a clean paper and envelope.

Here is an example of a supplier’s letter of confirmation of an oral agreement:
