Hello everybody!
I would like to ask you which of the three following forms can be used in business letters: please be informed, I hereby inform you, I\'d like to inform?
For example: Please be informed, I hereby inform you, I\'d like to inform you that the parcel in question has not arrived yet.
Thank you.

Dear Binummh,

My comments are as below:

a) Please be informed: - This sounds little bureaucratic or archaic language but nothing wrong in using as such

b) In hereby inform you OR I would like to inform you: - Instead of these phrases, the better phrase is "This is to inform you that ______"

You may use this phrase to give introduction about what has happened or present situation. The example is as below:

c) This is to inform you that I had booked parcel on ____ (dated) under docket number ____ to ____ (name of the country)

d) This is to inform you that I have savings bank account your branch bearing number ______

e) This is to inform you that I am member/subscriber of _____ and my membership No/subscription No is _____

After this introductory sentence give any additional information and then state what problem you are facing. In the closing paragraph, state clearly, what you want other party to do or what you expect from other party.

Hope this settles doubt in your mind.
