The British English is also known as Received Pronunciation (RP). On the contrary, American English is the language which is used and developed in the United States. The American English is also known as General American (GA).

The common responses when someone says "Thank you" to someone else in American and British English are different.

The common responses for "Thank you" in British English are That's all right or Not at all.

The common responses for "Thank you" in American English are You're welcome, or sometimes You're quite welcome or You're very welcome. But, there are other rather formal responses such as: O.K. or That's O.K. / That's all right. / Sure.

Note:
  • The response "Don't mention it." is correct, but not very common.
  • Other responses when someone expresses gratitude are: It was nothing. / It's a pleasure. / It's been a pleasure. The more formal expression is: The pleasure was all mine.
  • If you think you are the one who should say "Thank you" when another person says it first, you can say: Thank you (with the stress on the word "you").
