Business Letter Changing Company Name Example
There are several factors you should include in your business letter. Changing company name alone is not enough. Include your current business name as well. State the date that the change will go into effect, how checks to your company should now be written and any other pertinent details including a new address or change in ownership.
The letter does not need to be lengthy. In fact, a concise letter with just the necessary information will be better received and recalled by your recipients. Following is an example.
Dear Mr. Burton:
As you may have noticed by the letterhead, we have a new name. The business you knew as Import Racing Tuning is becoming Autocross Turbo Specialists. This change will take effect on December 1, 2010.
Aside from our company name, nothing has changed. We still offer the same quality automotive service on which you have come to rely. In fact, why not pay us a visit? Enclosed you will find a loyal customer discount coupon. Call and schedule a service appointment or just drop by. We’d love to see you and show you our new sign!
Thanks for your continued business.
Finally, you may wish to purchase or create company letterhead to use temporarily that includes your new business name as well as your former name, such as Diamond Landscaping Architecture, formerly Expert Lawn Architecture. This will help busy clients, customers and vendors remember that you have changed your company name.
