    My dear,
    I think that you had better rewrite this letter because it sound quite bad. If you are writing to your boss, I think he will feel little disappointed.
    Well,
    As I was trained in my college, you should begin with " Dear sir...."
    Then " I am writing to you to inform...." (informal) or " I write to you to .." (formal).
    I think " personal" is unnecessary.
    " and for company purpose" should be " because of useful company's purpose"
    You must use a dot before "therefore"
    " Therefore, I wonder whether you would mind providing him with a communication allowance"
    I hope my knowledge may help u!
    Cheers,

    I will leave it to you to know whether "Dave" or "Sir" or "Dear Sir" or "Dear Mr. Smith" is the right way to start a letter in your company. In my company, we would just use the person's first name.

    One of my salesmen, John Doe, has been using his personal mobile phone for communications with customers and for other business-related purposes. His ability to stay in contact while out of the office is a necessary part of his job. Therefore, I am recommending that he be given a communications allowance. Please let me know if you have any questions.
    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.
