Request for an increase in salary

Dear Mr. Brandon,

My present appointment carries an annual salary of USD18000; this was reviewed in March last year.

During my 5 years with this Company I feel I have carried out my duties conscientiously and have recently acquired additional responsibilities.

I feel that my qualification and the nature of my work justify a higher salary and have already been offered a similar position with another company at a salary of USD20,000 per annum,

My present duties are interesting and I thoroughly enjoy my work. Although I have no wish to leave the Company, I cannot afford to turn down the present offer unless some improvement in my salary can be arranged.

I hope a salary increase will be possible otherwise my only course will be to accept the offer made to me.

Yours sincerely,
