Dear Ms Smith (or first name if you have an informal relationship),
Please accept this as formal notice of my resignation from the position of Accountant at XYZ Corporation, effective two weeks from today. My last working day will be July 31, 2012.
After much consideration I have decided to accept another job offer. I feel it is time for a new challenge and this is a good opportunity to further my career goals.
Working for this company has been a wonderful experience. I feel privileged to have been part of such a professional team and will miss all my colleagues.
I appreciate both the professional and personal growth opportunities that have been provided to me during my time with the company. I would like to thank you in particular for all your advice and support. I hope that we will stay in touch as I begin this new chapter in my career.
I wish you and XYZ Corporation continued success in the future.
