RE: REQUEST FOR FURTHER & BETTER PARTICULARS
I refer to your letter dated 15 October 20xx.
You referred to an invoice dated 10 August 20xx. I don't recall receiving that invoice. Could you please send me a copy?
You also referred to services provided by agreement for 20 hours each month. If the invoice doesn't provide a breakdown of the hours and work carried out over the months of May, June and July 20xx, could you please send me a detailed list of the services you provided and the hours you spent on each of these services. Yours sincerely
