If I was asked to set a time for a business call, what terms can I use to formally suggest/ determine a time?

Can I use the following in formal writing?

"5 O'clock would be good for me. Would this suit you?"

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • How formal do you want to be? – Jim Dec 12 '18 at 21:44
  • If my supervisor asked to arrange a time to speak over a phone and I want to write back to set a time in a formal way. Is it correct if I said (5 O'clock would be good for me)? – Miro Dec 12 '18 at 21:51

I would say "I am available at 5:00 PM PST to talk to you."

    You can't presume to know what time zone would apply in this question. What if they're in Bulgaria, or Japan? – Chappo Dec 13 '18 at 0:04

    Sorry it was just an example. I didn’t mean to assume he was on PST. – ForeverLearning Dec 14 '18 at 4:46
