Asking apology in professional way


Senior Member
I would like to apologize for not forwarding the invoice to Lilya on time. I just realized that she hadn't received it in on August 23, 2014.

Again, I am sorry for all of you for any inconvenience that this created.

I forgot to forward an invoice to coworker to process it and forward it for payment. I just realized it happened three days before when a vendor following up with us. Thus now, it has to be processed urgently. I would like to apology the vendor and my co- workers in email. is it a proper way of asking apology in a professional way in English.

Thanks for your help and time.

    I often use the sentence: "Very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused!"
    But I don't know if it's correct or not :(
    Hi Jolie Do, and welcome to the forum:)

    Your sentence is correct, but to be less informal, you should add "I'm" to the start of it: "I'm very sorry for...".
