In that case, "claim" is normally used when the information shared has not been proven, while "announce" does not directly imply that the information could be false. "Announce" just suggests a sharing of information to typically a group of people and in a formal way. Let's look at these two sentences: A) Sally claimed that her bag was stolen. B) Sally announced that her bag was stolen. In A, I understand that Sally's bag might be stolen according to her and it may not be true but she wants me or us to believe that. In B, I understand that Sally's bag might be stolen and there is more confidence in the accuracy of the information shared. It has been shared by her to a group of people.

Other questions about "Claim"

Q: "We have to make a claim for the delay." --- I have a question about the phrase "make a claim". I think it means "complain", but in the book that I found this phrase, it is translated as "ask for compen...
A: "To make a claim," is a formal or an official assertion (often used by legal or formal institutes). Though the phrase can be used for formal "complaints," it doesn't always have to be. For example, look at the sentence, "I have to make a claim for my lottery ticket." In this example, it isn't a complaint, but a formal assertion (or will make that assertion) that you are the owner of the lottery ticket. In general, "make a claim" can mean many things depending on context, but they will all be formal or official assertions. With your example sentence earlier, "We have to make a claim for the delay," has a very different meaning to "We complained about the delay." I'm not sure which one you meant to say since there was little context. I can see people using the first sentence when traveling by airplanes, flights got delayed, and they want to be reimbursed by their travel insurance. I can also see people using the second sentence with a late train and people vocalizing their frustrations. I hope this helps.

The next sentence, "should", should be replaced with "can". "We keep both the receipts...." should be changed to "We kept both of the receipts and the warranty after we purchased the computers for your company.". The second to last sentence should be changed slightly to "I would like you to know as soon as possible, so you can pick the defective computers up at our office and deliver the new computers." As for the last sentence "by return" isn't needed. I wish you the best of luck learning English, and I am sorry I cannot reply in Japanese!
