It be very much appreciated

This phrase is not correct in English. It lacks the appropriate modal verb to express a polite request or suggestion.

The correct phrase should be "it would be very much appreciated." This structure is commonly used to politely ask for something or express gratitude.


  • it would be very much appreciated
  • it is very much appreciated
  • it will be very much appreciated
  • it could be very much appreciated
  • it might be very much appreciated
The correct phrase is "it would be very much appreciated." The use of "would" in this context indicates a polite request or suggestion, making the phrase more appropriate and commonly used in English.
