If you need a letter to allow somebody that you trust to collect an amount on your behalf, then this letter is useful for you to think about the situation that you are authorizing someone to collect a certain amount when you are not able to go yourself. Or to collect some documents that represent a certain value (cheques, bearer shares, etc) when you are not able to go yourself. This is an efficient way for senior management to delegate some of the tasks to their subordinates and also allows them to set certain boundaries.

This convenient authorization letter template is perfect for such kind of situation. The format gives the bearer, including 2 additional identification proof/papers to ensure the identity of the receiver, as a reference, sufficient proof to pick up the payment(s). Make sure to fill in the exact date, person, location, and other details that are requested below. Remember that this is just a guide to you for creating your authorization letters.

In general, the Authorization letter should contain the following information:

  • Subject: ‘Authorization to collect payment’ or ‘Authorization letter to claim money: (description)
  • Date;
  • Letter-recipient contact and general information;
  • Amount/value of the payment or documents;
  • Salutation: (Dear Sir NAME, Dear Madam NAME, “To Whom It May Concern”)
  • The reason why cannot collect;
  • Authorization limitations (amount of items, value, etc);
  • Period of authorization is valid
  • Date of collection: a preferred date for collection of the goods
  • Any further information or additional instructions
  • Contact information ( beneficiary contact details, phone numbers).
  • Closing: Use a simple closing like “Thank you for your kind cooperation”
  • Beneficiary passport name: Skip three or four lines to leave enough space for a signature and type the name of the payee below the closing.
  • Signature: Always sign the letter in blue or black ink.

In life it happens often you are too busy, and you cannot be at 2 locations at the same time. It helps if you have somebody else that can help you, for example, to pick up an amount of money on your behalf. In this situation, it's best to make a brief statement that authorizes somebody else to act on behalf of you.
