A business letter is a formal piece of correspondence that addresses a professional topic. Business letters begin with a heading that contains the name and contact information of the sender. This is followed by the date the letter was sent and the contact information of the letter's recipient. The salutation of a business letter contains the recipient's first and last name and is followed by a colon rather than a comma. The closing contains the sender's signature and her typed or printed name.
