Business Letters Principles to keep in mind in business writing, is to know your audience. When writing to your audience assume that they have limited time to read this document and is likely to skim through. They want to know the "bottom line" , therefore they know what you are trying to explain. To keep your audience interested in what they are reading, keep your letters formal. Also be sure to Proof Read the document before handing out. You want to watch how you write your letter; using passive voice does not clearly speak of who or what. Using active voice explains who or what is being talked about. This helps the audience read and understand clearly. When writing business letters be sure to have your business address on the far right of your paper to whom you are and the address to who you are writing it to on the far left.

Next, you want to address to whom you are writing . Such as "Dear, Human Resource". Then after writing your letter, sign the letter by saying "Sincerely, your name". When faxing a document to another business, etc. You will need a cover sheet to go along with your document. On your cover sheet you must have a date, which it is addressed to (the company address) then you need to state for what purpose you are sending the letter. Examples of my handout will be, how to prepare a cover sheet, how to prepare a letter and also a little bit on what is in with owning your own business.
