Memorandums, commonly called “Memos” for short are used in many businesspeople to communicate with others in the same office. This form of communication is called Interoffice Memos. Businesspeople also send memos to people outside the office who work closely with them.

Memos are usually brief and focus on a limited topic. They are often fairly informal in tone.

Words such as TO: FROM: DATE: SUBJECT: in a memo are called Headings or Guide Words. A colon follows each heading and they are usually keyed in Double Spaced Lines (DS). Be sure set your margins as follows: Top margin – two (2) inches and all other margins – one (1) inch.

Thank you.
