How to Write Acknowledgement Letter [With Sample]

An Acknowledgement Letter is any letter that accepts that a deed has been done; money has been paid, receipt of parcel was successful and so on. In that light, this kind of letter, like an acceptance letter, may not necessarily be written in a formal tone. When a sister wants to express to her brother that she had received the parcel he sent to her, she can do so in a letter of acknowledgement with an informal tone.

When writing with an informal tone, the writer can express him/herself as much as possible but should make sure that s/he does not go on and on repeating what has already been said, hence, elongating the letter. An unnecessarily long letter loses its value and makes the reader lose interest.

When writing with a formal tone, to a higher authority, an organization, or any of the sorts, the writer should be as concise but clear as possible.
