    formal letter

    Hello Everyone ,

    My question is can we end the letter that started with " Dear Mr. Ali " with Kind regards, rather than Sincerely yours.

    Kind regards ,

    Hi,
    I've never seen such a phrase in formal correspondence. In BrE, as far as I know, if you know the people you're writing to by name you finish up with "Yours Sincerely", and if you've started with Dear Sir/Madam, you end up with "Yours Faithfully"...So, you'd better take the safe side and don't use "kind regards"...Hope it works...
