    I don't know what you're trying to say.

    It doesn't make sense.

    Probus tried to express what you probably meant to say.

    "Kindly" comes across as foreign. "Kindly" and "with thanks" are redundant. There is no need to bookend a sentence with politeness.

    I disagree with you. I copied it from my business e-mail which is from my staff.
    I think it's using it for business e-mail. The politeness is needed. And, "with thanks" in the end is also needed.
    All of my point in above-mentioned sentences, if it's wrong, please tell me and correct me.

    I hope you can give me advice. SoothingDave

    Re: Can I say "Kindly assist to check related goods cost for this issue with thanks"?

    Is "with thanks" the end of the sentence? You didn't include a period at all, so I assumed it was all one run-on sentence. That would be incorrect.

    If "With thanks" is your sign-off on your email, that would be fine.

    Punctuation matters.

    You make me confused.
    All native teacher are here said that the sentence is incorrect. But, you say it is correct, what's going on?
    I mean this is a correct sentence. Do you agree?
    "Kindly assist to check related goods cost for this issue with thanks"
