If you know the name of the person to whom the letter is addressed, then you may use: "Yours sincerely". If you do not know the name, or you are writing to an organisation, then the "Yours faithfully" salutation is the correct form of address.

When to use yours faithfully and yours sincerely?

You use 'yours sincerely' when addressing some one you do not know - as in a job application. You use 'yours faithfully' when addressing some one you do know and are subordinate to them - such as your boss. I might only be able to speak for the usage in England (where I am from) but I do not believe the above to be correct. We use "Yours sincerely" when we know the name of the recipient, e.g. Dear Mr Smith ... Yours sincerely "Yours faithfully" is used when we do not know the name of the recipient, e.g. Dear Sir/Madam ... Yours faithfully Both are only used in formal letters.
