"Should you" is ok, and yes, it means "if you" in this case.

However, the end of the sentence doesn't match the start of the sentence. "Should you" is quite formal, whereas "tell me" doesn't really match that level of speech. I think something like this would be better:

Should you need any further assistance, please let us know.
Should you need any further assistance, please contact us.

If you are replying as an individual, and not as an organization, you can change 'us' to 'me'. You can also change 'need' to 'require', which will make it a little more formal as well:

"Should you require any further assitance...".
