    In accordance with / according to / conforming to

    Hello all,

    I would like to know if all the expressions in the title mean the same and can be use interchangeably with the same meaning.

    In accordance with the contract I donīt have to pay a deposit
    According to the contract I donīt havd to pay a deposit
    Conforming to the contract I donīt have to pay a deposit

    Many thanks,

    Irland5

    Re: In accordance with / according to / conforming to

    Sentences 1 and 2 would be correct if they ended with a period (full stop).

    Sentence 3 is grammatically correct but not natural.

    You need a comma after "contract" each time.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
