    thank you for your time

    Hi,
    I want to say to my supervisor thank you for your time.
    Is it formal if I write at the end of the letter *thank you for your
    time* and then write sincerely?

    Re: thank you for your time

    Are you thanking your supervisor for taking the time to read your letter? Are you thanking him/her for taking the time to do something for you before you wrote the letter?

    If you are writing a formal letter and you have started it "Dear Mr + surname" then you can end it "Yours sincerely".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I don't see a problem with using either "Thank you for your time" or "Thank you for your attention". In order to avoid ambiguity, I would probably use the "attention" version.

    You're welcome. Please remember the rules of written English when you post on the forum:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with the relevant punctuation mark (full stop, question mark, exclamation mark).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
