Memos are written messages or communications between people within an organization. They are normally typed on sheets of paper containing only the logo of the company and not on a letterhead. A memo could be of different sizes of paper- A4, A5 depending on the length of the matter to be sent.

The layout of a memo varies considerably from organization to organization; however , this will present no problem once the basic form and purpose of memos is understood;
