Upon an appointment in an organization, you are being first given an Appointment or Job Offer letter that mentions a certain amount of salary. You may perhaps go on to skip whatever is written in the letter and will solely focus on the amount of salary that as it is usually mentioned in bold. If that figure is acceptable for you and perhaps exceeds your expectation, you will probably start jumping with joy. However, there is a formal way to thank the organization or the employer for the salary offer according to your expectations. You can simply write a Salary Acceptance Letter that indicates your acceptance for the salary offered. While writing this letter, you are supposed to show enthusiasm for joining the company. Besides, the letter should be concise and free of possible typing and grammatical errors as it makes up your impression before the employer.
Your (Candidate) Contact information
Since this is a formal letter, so you write your contact information at the top left corner of the page that should include your name, followed by your address, city, postal code, email address and contact number.
(City, State, Zip code)
(Your Phone Number)
(Your Email Address)
Skipping one line space after the contact information, you are supposed to mention the date on which you are writing this letter. Normally you follow (DD/MM/YYYY) format for mentioning the date.
Employer’s Contact Information
Again leaving one line space after mentioning the date, write complete information of the employer that should contain employer’s name, designation, company name, and company address, City, State, Zip code, and phone number as given below:
(City, State, Zip code)
Yet again after mentioning the employer’s information, you leave one line space and go on to write the salutation that should be addressing your employer with his/her second or surname. For example: Dear Mr. James, Ms. Marshall, or Mrs. Anderson etc.
The introduction or the introductory paragraph of the salary acceptance letter should preferably be no more than two to three lines. You simply acknowledge the employer for considering you for the applied post showing enthusiasm.
This is where you mention the actual cause of excitement which is of course the offered salary and other benefits. Simply appreciate the salary offered as well as the other benefits along with the date that you are likely to join the organization.
Conclude your letter in a couple of sentences by mentioning that how far you will be contributing for the benefit of the organization. It is often good to ask if the employers needs any documents upon joining so that you are all set as you start working.
This is very much similar to the other official or formal letters that you might have written before. Simply close by mentioning “Yours Truly, Yours Faithfully, Regards and etc, followed by handwritten signature and typed name.
