    Re: when do you use yours faithfully and/or yours sincerley etc

    From Writing Business Letters--Useful phrases: Your faithfully or Yours sincerely?

    When 'Yours faithfully' and when 'Yours sincerely' in a business letter?

    When the recipient's name is unknown to you:

    Dear Sir ... Yours faithfully

    Dear Madam ... Yours faithfully

    Dear Sir or Madam ... Yours faithfully



    When you know the recipient's name:

    Dear Mr Hanson ... Yours sincerely

    Dear Mrs Hanson ... Yours sincerely

    Dear Miss Hanson ... Yours sincerely

    Dear Ms Hanson ... Yours sincerely



    When addressing a good friend or colleague:

    Dear Jack ... Best wishes/Best regards



    Addressing whole departments:

    Dear Sirs ... Yours faithfully
