What Is an Example of a Remittance Letter?

An example of a remittance letter is as follows: Dear Mr. Smith; Enclosed is $75 for December, 2015 for the office furniture I am leasing from your company, Office Solutions. My account number is: 123409. Sincerely, Ellen Hunter

A remittance letter is simply a letter sent along with a payment; they provide information regarding the nature of the mailed funds and ensure that payment is correctly applied to an account. Such letters are frequently used when a business is unfamiliar with the person or account being credited such as a new account, or when mailing payment to a large company such as a utility or phone bill.
