This is a sample Letter Declining Offer of Transfer.

Mr. Goh Boon Siong,
Eastworld Insurance Sdn Bhd,
Suite 12/65 Wisma Tinggi,

Dear Mr. Goh Boon Siong,
Regarding the Board's offer of promotion and transfer to Melaka, I must respectfully decline. This is not because I do not want the promotion. Who would not want to have a company house and car? I decline because the situation in my family does not allow me to move to Melaka just yet.
The problem is that my wife's aged mother is staying with us and she needs regular medical treatment at the University Hospital. As my wife is an only child, her recently widowed mother is forced to stay with us. I cannot risk moving my mother-in-law down to Melaka where she has to adjust to new conditions. In her weakened state, the stress may prove too much.
I suggest you get another person to handle the Melaka problem. Johnny Lee or S.Mahadevan are suitable candidates. I am sure anyone of these two can do the job. I apologise for not being able to take up the offer but I appreciate your faith in me.
