I want to write a cost estimation for my part of a large business proposal, and I just tried scrartcl. My address I put in the top left corner using \titlehead. As it already contains my name, I did not specify \author. Now there is a gap between the title and the date.

Is it possible to reduce that gap? Should I better use another class?

I also considered scrlttr2, but it doesn't seem appropriate either: There is only my address, i.e. no destination address.



\title{Cost estimation}
% \author{}

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

You could for example write \date{\vspace{-1cm}11.10.2013} and adjust the space as you like it.
