Additionally, we'll provide you with some instances of cold emails, follow-up emails after meetings, and cold emails.

Kind regards or best wishes should be used.

Greetings, Meaning

A letter or kind regards email might be concluded in a formal manner by using the phrase "best regards."

It is typically employed when the sender and recipient are strangers or when a business relationship rather than a personal one exists.

It is crucial to match the formality of your greeting to the overall tone of your letter, even if "best regards" may be used in both official and informal writing.

For instance, using "Dear" and "Best Regards" at the opening and conclusion of a nice message to a coworker will probably come out as too professional.

On the other hand, adopting a more formal closing, such as "Sincerely," might be suitable if you were asking for a job.

In general, use "best regards" sparingly in writing, and only if you are certain that it suits the tone of your letter.

The two most common methods to end a business email are "Kind Regards" and "Best Regards," but picking the appropriate one might be challenging. In order for you to always know which sign-off to use, we'll discuss the minute differences between them in this post.

When to Employ "Best Regards"

Kind regards is a courteous and respectful way to conclude a letter or email to the receiver. Writing good regards conveys your respect for this person and your best intentions for them. Your regard for someone is equivalent to your hopes or thoughts for them.

Since the phrase "kind regards" is a semi-formal way to end a sentence, you would only use it when speaking to strangers. Anyone you're writing to for the first time might fall into this category, especially if they didn't get in touch with you beforehand. Additionally, be courteous while speaking with senior coworkers (e.g., your supervisor or manager.)

Use of "Best Regards"

Kind regards and best wishes both signify respect and civility, while best wishes are seen as less formal. Therefore, you should only use it with people you are more comfortable with, such as coworkers and clients you have already interacted with.

We advise using warm regards if you're unsure if you know someone well enough to say best wishes. Regards is a common expression, although it sounds somewhat cold and harsh.

Conclusion: Kind regards or best wishes?

Greetings and best wishes are two examples of informal, adaptable email sign-offs. Respect and well wishes are the same ideas behind both expressions. However, kind respect is more formal.

As a result, when writing to strangers or those in positions of authority over you, use polite language. When writing to someone you know well, you should use the phrase "best regards."

We've hopefully made it clear how to utilize best wishes and good regards in your communications. You should let a professional edit your writing to ensure that it is as good as it possibly can be. Send us a free sample paper so we can demonstrate our proofreading capabilities.
