What is a report?
First, let’s look at the definition of a report. According to the Oxford English Dictionary a report is “a statement of the results of an investigation or of any matter on which definite information is required.” and, importantly, it is designed to help others.

How do I write a business report?
Business reports are a standard part of any business professional’s kit. So, how do you write a comprehensive business report? To begin with you need to make sure you know the answers to the following three questions.

Tips on how to write the introduction for a report
A business report is always created to solve a problem. This could be something simple, such as finding a better way to organise the ordering of office stationery or a more complex problem, such as implementing a new multi-million pound computer system.

Tips on how to write the conclusion for a report
The conclusions section of a report is one of the most important parts and, along with the introduction, one of the last to be written. It brings together all the points raised in a coherent way, ready for the next section, the recommendations, to be written.

Doing research for your report
So, you’ve got a report to write, but how do you go about gathering together the information that you’re going to include? It can be quite a daunting task if you’ve never carried out comprehensive research before, so learning the most effective methods is a real bonus.

Presenting your ideas to a group or audience
If you are not used to presenting your ideas to a group, it can be nerve-wracking – especially if you feel unprepared for it. But, fear not, there are some simple, but highly effective, measures you can take to ensure you are fully prepared and confident when the time comes.
