Contract Termination Letter Example

Need a contract termination letter example? Ending a business relationship with a vendor might not seem as clear-cut as ending one with a regular employee, especially if you don't work with vendors often. You may have decided to use another type of vendor for your goods and services, or you may wish to end an arrangement with an independent contractor whose contract is nearly expired. Just like any business letter, you need to follow the proper format and tone. A contract termination letter is a formal declaration of your intent to cease business relations with another company. The following termination letters deal with two different situations, one in which the vendor delivered on the contract and one in which the vendor did not:
