    Beginning of notice

    It is hereby informed that...
    It is hereby to inform that..

    Are both the ways to begin a notice correct?

    Re: Beginning of notice

    Neither is correct.

    'You are hereby informed that...'

    'Notice is hereby given that...'

    Re: Beginning of notice

    I completely agree with Rover on the grammar, but as a business writer, I would urge you to at least consider another beginning.

    If your goal is to come across as dictatorial, distant, and somewhat pompous, it's a fine beginning.
    If you are writing to people you work with every day, there are other ways to start.
    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.

    If you can be informal with them, then "This is [just] to let you know that ... " works.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Beginning of notice

    Or even simply "Starting Friday, December 20, ..."
    "Please note: All library books are due before the start of the Christmas holiday."

    It depends on what you need to say.
