Tutorial for “Cancel a Service Contract”


In a courteous tone, carefully explain that you are canceling your contract. You need not give the reader all of the particulars concerning the circumstances causing the cancellation, but you should provide a brief explanation.


1. Announce your intention to cancel your contract and give a brief explanation.


  • Although we have enjoyed your services over the past year, we must cancel our contract because we have decided to open our own accounting department within the company.
  • Our corporate office has announced that we must work within a smaller budget this year. I regret that I must cut costs by canceling our service contract.
  • I have no choice but to cancel our service contract. After three serious discussions, your workers still have not provided adequate service.
  • I received your work today. Although it is very good, I cannot use it because it arrived two weeks past the deadline. I had to accept someone else's work at the last minute. Under the circumstances, I must cancel our service contract.
