A memorandum is a written communication between members of the same organisation. It is a short written report prepared specially for a person or group of people that contains information about a particular matter.
There is no standard form of layout for a memorandum because it varies from organisation to organisation.
The main difference between a letter and a memorandum is that a memo has no inside address, salutation or complimentary close, and it is not always signed or even initiated by the sender.
Special Features in Memo
Memorandum does not have salutation or complimentary close
The signature block is optional, depending on the style, although it has become an accepted practice in this country to sign memo for the purpose of authentication.
Block and indented paragraph may be adopted.
Some memos have a subject heading which gives the reader information about the contents of the memo. The heading is typed two single spaces below the last line of the printed heading.
The body of the memo is always typed in single line spacing. It is typed two single line spaces just below the subject.
