Letter Offering a Partnership

Letter Business Letter Partnership

When you decide to make a partnership offer to someone else, use a business letter both to convey your message clearly and powerfully as well as to keep a legal record of your offer. Detailed documents describing the proposed partnership may be included in the package; but more than anything else a letter offering a partnership must contain an explicit offer and should be formatted as a formal business letter.

Content of a Letter Offering A Partnership

A letter offering a partnership is not usually sent out of the blue. On the contrary, a partnership offer is usually extended only after a working relationship has already been established or two individuals or companies have both communicated and looked into the advantages and disadvantages of such a relationship. This means that the content of a letter offering a partnership can be kept relatively short. There is no need to detail why such a relationship would be advantageous to both sides, nor should the tone be similar to that of a sales letter. Instead, a letter offering a partnership should explicitly state partnership offer, detail any enclosed materials and/or contain an invitation to meet to discuss and finalise the partnership. The tone of such letters should be enthusiastic but professional.

Format of a Letter Offering A Partnership

A letter offering a partnership is a formal business letter. The format of such a letter must conform to accepted business letter standards. The name, title and mailing address of both the writer and recipient should be include. Formal salutations and closings should be employed. The date must be clearly stated, and the signature of the writer should be legible. If any other documents are enclosed with the letter then these should be mentioned either in the body of the letter or below the writer's signature. Block format, or beginning each line flush with the left margin, and single spacing are appropriate for letters offering a partnership. Such letters should be printed on company letterhead and either posted or sent by courier. Email delivery is not appropriate.

Dear Ms Singer,

It is with great delight that I write to offer you a formal partnership between Ruth's Golden Bakery and Cupcakes By Post.

Our trial run of selling your cupcakes at the Bakery and the Bakery's goods on your website has been a smashing success and I am eager for our relationship to continue. As previously discussed, a formal partnership could necessitate name changes to bring our two businesses together as a unified organisation and I for one am most excited to begin this journey.

Please find enclosed the legal documents pertaining to this partnership offer. My solicitor's contact information is included in this package and should you have any reason to request a meeting I am amenable to any time or place you prefer.

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon regarding this new venture and beginning what promises to be a very lucrative relationship for us both. Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions or concerns.

Yours sincerely,

Ruth Gold
Owner, Ruth's Golden Bakery
