    Hi Teachers,
    Which one is better to end a letter?
    a) That's all for now.
    b) That will be all.

    Thanks in advance

    If it's a personal letter, you could use a). I wouldn't use b) to end any letter.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your reply.
    Yes. That's a personal letter. Is option 'b' more formal?

    No. We just don't normally use it to end any kind of letter. I would expect to hear it from someone in charge ending a meeting.
