    I have 3 questions I need help with but I will do them separately. If your company has letterhead paper, you should,
    A) use it for correspondence required in the department
    B) type the company's address below the letterhead
    C) omit the inside address
    D) type the date below the letterhead
    Thanks all

    During my many years in busines - for British and American companies - A) would have been bad practice for internal correspondence as letterhead paper is usualy quite expensive. In adddition, many companies had special internal paper for A)'s purpose. Doesn't letterhead paper always have the address pre-printed?

    I think the date is essential.

    As Davy mentioned, most large companies have separate forms for inter-office memos. If not, you can easily make up a form that says "from the desk of ________" (on plain paper with no company letterhead) with your name to send to someone within the company.

    When sending a letter on company stationery, you do not repeat the company's address. You simply scroll down enough so that your letter will be centered, and then type the current date. Scroll down two vertical spaces and type the name and address to whom you're sending the letter. Two more spaces and you type your salutation (Dear _______). Two more spaces, and you begin the body of your letter.

    When you type/sign your name or your superior's name at the bottom of the letter, you do not type the name of the company, just the signatory's name and title, if applicable.
