So, just be very careful with the verbiage contents of the letter. You might not be able to change it later.

Hence, it is advisable to address the letter as ‘WHOMSOEVER IT MAY CONCERN’ rather than specifically to any one specific. This would help you use the letter at multiple places.

The official employer letter head that you use to print these letters should clearly show the company's address (could be any in case of multiple offices) and reachable contact numbers.

Your assessment company (like ACS) might contact them over phone or by paper letter to verify your claims. If the letter head does not inherently has the address and contact numbers, then you should add them.
