    Help please-Usage: For your information / For your reference

    Hi, I'm a new member here and first of all- I would like to thank everyone in advance for I believe this has been and will be a helpful website in learning and establishing proper english skills.

    This is my first post. I am confused when to use "for your information" and "for your reference" in business letters. should i use the latter only when i have attachments to "refer" to?

    Thanks for reading, I appreciate your reply=)

    They are essentially interchangeable - both inform the recipient that he/she is not expected to take or carry out any action save to take note of the content.
