Subject Line in a Business Letter

Language Guide German + Dictionary for iPhone and iPod-Touch (made by ego4u)

A subject line is not really necessary. You may want to use one, however, so that the reader immediately knows what your letter is about. There are three common methods to distinguish the subject line from the body of the letter:

British English

The subject line is usually placed between the salutation and the body of the letter (with a blank line in between).

American English

In American English, the subject line can also be placed between the recipient's address and the salutation (with a blank line in between).
