    Re: Use of initials for multiple writers of a letter

    Welcome to the forums.

    In all my years working in offices, I have never had "multiple signatories". A general signing off would take the form of

    "Finance Committee,
    xxxx co. Ltd."

    or

    "Accounts Receivable
    xxxx co Ltd."

    with one person signing the letter.



    Can you provide more context for your query?

    I think I know what you mean! Apologies if not. For instance, my parents used to have a joint bank account and when they wrote to the bank, at the bottom they always wanted to put both their names under their signatures.

    In their case (these are not their real names!), they would put:

    Mr P.J. & Mrs E.L. Smith

    If you/they don't want to use Mr and Mrs (or any other titles), then you can just use:

    PJ and EL Smith

    I hope that helps.
