Letter of Reminder
Should indicate that the recipient had forgotten to make an important act. Most often the reminder letter is used as a reminder of the missed payment. Yoy must tread a careful line. You cannot be sure your client is deliberately frustrating you, he may really have forgotten. Positively stating your request and still retaining the recipient's goodwill. This is especially true for the first reminder letter concerning an unpaid invoice. So begin your reminder letter in simple form: just let client know about the forgotten event. Include all the relevant details.
Provide as much information as possible. Repeat all the necessary information – time, date, place, deadlines, purpose and so forth. If the reader has forgotten about what the reminder is about, he or she shouldn't have to go elsewhere in the files to get more information to carry out the action.
If you are writing a reminder letter in memo form, mention in both the subject line and body of the memo the word “reminder.” Otherwise, the reader may think you are sending him/her new information containing some detail about which he or she was unaware beforehand.
If the letter of reminder is sent due to some change in the original plan or announcement, call special attention to that change. To add emphasis, place that detail alone in a separate paragraph or underline it. If necessary, request a confirmation.
