Make sure that your report contains all of the following headings, shown below in Components of a business report.


Components of a business report

A business report contains a collection of objective data that the reader should consider. The report can contain suggestions and recommendations, but its primary purpose should be to present facts and information. Please note this important distinction. A report is not a proposal. A proposal is a sales pitch with the single objective of promoting an idea. A business proposal spends most of its time promoting suggestions and recommendations. A business report spends most of its time presenting objective facts. Proposals propose. Reports report.


Please include all of the following headings and sections in your report:


Title Page

Business reports generally follow a formal structure, unless they are very short email reports. Most moderate to long reports begin with a title page. The title page shows the full title of the report, the name of the author and the names of audience members or groups.


Abstract or Executive Summary

The report should also include an “abstract” or “executive summary.” This brief summary presents the purpose, methods, scope, findings, conclusions and recommendations of the report. A high-level business executive might choose not to read the entire report, but instead to read only the executive summary. Write the summary with enough detail to provide a busy executive with the most important elements of the report.  See this resource for writing abstracts:
