Since You Asked (Informal)

Usually, it means you have something physical to give them an answer (i.e. a file or document).
You’ll find this phrase works best conversationally. For example, you might use it when speaking with a colleague who asked for your input into a project and would like to know what you’d do next in their position.
“Since you asked” also tends to work better in spoken situations rather than written ones. It can seem a bit jarring in written cases, especially if you include it in an email.
Finally, “Since you asked” isn’t all that effective formally. You should definitely stick with “as per your request” if you want to be as professional as possible in written contexts.

Is It Correct to Say “As Per Your Request”?
“As per your request” is grammatically correct, but many writers see it as redundant.
Instead, you might find that “per your request” works better because “as” and “per” mean the same thing.
Generally, you should include the phrase in a business email. It directs the recipient toward an attached file if they’ve specifically requested something.
Here are some variations you can use:
- As per your request, please find attached the documents
- As per your request, please find the below information
- As per your request, please find attached my resume
You don’t always have to include “as per your request” at the start. The following are both correct:
- As per your request, please find attached
- Please find attached, as per your request
There isn’t a tonal difference between the two based on where you place the phrase.
When using “as per,” you should always use “your request.” “Request” is a noun. You should never try to turn “request” into a verb (so, “as per requested” is never correct).
- Correct: As per your request, please find the attached file.
- Incorrect: As per requested, please find the attached file.
