Conclusion

* They both contain the companies addresses and details * They both contain account numbers and reference numbers. * Both documents are A4 * Both documents have no footer with no header. * They both contain margins * They both share a logo. * The logo is in the same place on both documents. * Both documents don't use shading. Differences * The letter has a different layout to the bill. The letter looks a lot more professional with its layout and the bill the looks like an ordinary bill. * The bill is used to inform the customer of bills that need to be paid and the letter is to inform the customer about the customers call level. * The letter has a signing off signature from the customer relations manager, but the bill has no signature at all this is because it is from the company not a person. * The bills logo is smaller than the letters logo. * The letter has more white space than the bill. Possible Reasons for these differences * The biggest reason for these differences is because the Letter is a lot more formal and professional. The bill is just something to inform the customer how much money they owe to the company. Also Bills are a lot more serious so the letter is a lot more relaxed. * The letter has a lot more white space because the letter has less too say. Also the bill has to have a lot of information on it therefore there will be less white space.
