Business to business letter regarding corrections to prices or terms of sale

Any terms of business, if amended, must be notified to your clients in writing.

Failure to do so can be considered misrepresentation.

Any amendments to business terms have to be specified, item by item if necessary. The reasons can be as simple as a few typos in a letter, or a printer's error in a trade catalog.

Your letter can be very simple, as long as all the required materials are provided, without omissions.

Where the amendments are a result of internal error, it's advisable to be particularly careful to check all information prior to issuing corrections. One letter advising of errors may be normal, two can be embarrassing.

Note: Itemization of all matters subject to correction is essential for clarity.
