    Default Business Letter

    Excuse me

    I would like to ask whose name I should write after CC (carbon copy) in a business letter.
    what's the use of writing CC?

    It indicates who is getting a copy of the letter.

    It lets the recipient know who else is receiving a copy.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    You wouldn't use "CC" if you are only sending the letter to one person. However, if the letter is addressed to one person but you are sending a copy/copies of it to other people, then those are the names you would put after CC.

    For example, if you were writing a letter to me, but sending a copy/photocopy/carbon copy to Barb D (just for her information) you would write:

    Dear emsr2d2

    I am writing to advise you that I will no longer be taking part in the Using English forum because my English is now perfect. I have enjoyed using the forum and I wish you all the best for the future.

    Yours sincerely
