Writing an effective business report is a necessary skill for communicating ideas in the business environment. Reports usually address a specific issue or problem, and are often commissioned when a decision needs to be made. They present the author’s findings in relation to the issue or problem and then recommend a course of action for the organisation to take. 

The key to a good report is in-depth analysis. Good writers will show their reader how they have interpreted their findings. The reader will understand the basis on which the conclusions are drawn as well as the rationale for the recommendations.

Report writing uses some of the writing skills you have already acquired. You will structure your paragraphs and reference your ideas just as you have been doing in your essays and other assignments within your Commerce degree. Report writing sometimes differs in structure and style. This handbook will help you plan, structure, and write a basic report. Remember, though, that reports will vary according to their purpose and the needs of their reader/s. 

Planning your business report

As in all writing, planning is vitally important. The key questions to ask yourself when planning a business report are:
  • What is the purpose of this report 
  • Who are the readers of this report 
  • What are the report’s main messages 
  • How will the report be structured?
This handbook has been written in collaboration with the School of Marketing and International Business, and Student Learning, Victoria University of Wellington
