Business Letter Format

It goes without saying that if one wants to gain/maintain credibility in business, they must format their business letters professionally. Any old format will not do.

When I did my research into business letter formats for my Instant Business Letter Kit I discovered at least a dozen different recommended letter styles. Of course some of those were very similar, but there were sufficient dissimilarities to make them appear somewhat different.

I also learned during my research that some texts and websites called what appeared to be the same letter format, different names. Extremely confusing, to say the least. So, for my letter series of writing kits I have reduced those dozen formats down to a list five, as follows:

Business letter formats include: basic-block style, semi-block style, full-block format, square-block style, and simplified letter format.

Although my Instant Business Letter Kit includes fully-formatted examples of all five (5) of those letter formats, I am only going to present one here - the Full-Block style or format.

Here is the full-block style letter format as presented in my writing kit:

The above business letter format sample was copied directly from my business writing style guide Instant Business Letter Kit. That Kit contains almost 200 pages of business letter writing tips, techniques and information, including more than 100 real-life fully-formatted business letter templates that you can instantly download into your word processing program and work with as you please.

In addition to the above format for "business letters", you may also be interested in some of the other typical letter formats, depicted elsewhere on this site, that are often used for other business and personal situations:
