What is Acknowledgement of Receipt?

An acknowledgement of receipt is a letter sent by companies or individuals to another party to address something they have received. This can include resumes, payment documents or insurance information as well as memos, such as resignation letters or out-of-office notices. For example, if an individual sends a company their resignation letter, the company might send an acknowledgement letter back stating that they have received the information. These letters are often fairly short, generally spanning one page or less, and individuals can send them through the mail or electronically through email.
