Dear Sir,

Re: Formal Request for Time Off

I, James Barton, Junior Accountant from Commercial Department at Chartered Accounting Services, would like to make a formal request for some time off during work hours. The reason for my request is that I am considering an upgrade to my qualification to serve the company in a greater capacity and the Professional Accounting course that I am considering has one class on Friday from 5-8pm.

I am seeking your approval to allow me to go off at 4.30pm on Fridays for 3 months, commencing October 15, 2010. I am willing to put back the ½ hour on another day.

Your prompt and favourable response to my request will be appreciated as I would need to confirm my attendance to the course by September 30, 2010. Thank you for your kind consideration on my request.

Yours faithfully,

James Barton

Junior Accountant
