Business reports have more in common with cakes than you might think. If they both look professionally made (written) and have great ingredients (content), it is hard to say no. Carefully-made cakes and business reports can be a joy to consume. And whether you need to write this business report for your job or as part of a language exam, it is a fantastic opportunity to impress. By paying attention to both the words in your report and the presentation (how it looks), you can prove that you are a good writer to your boss or to the examiner grading your paper. So we are going to help you write an irresistible business report by providing six simple guidelines.
Since the reader is probably somebody higher up, so you should try to use a neutral tone, maybe even a formal one. Here are two language tricks you can use to help achieve a formal tone.

We dont want to focus on the person performing the action (the person who needs to make the changes). Instead, the passive voice focuses on the action (the fact that changes need to be made). Include a standard top section, This is a section that most people forget about when writing a report, especially if they write it on paper (not on a computer) as part of an exam. The standard top section is provided automatically when you write an email. It is helpful to include a top section in reports, as well as in proposals and memos, because the reader sees at a glance who the report is addressed to, who wrote it, when it was written and what it is about.
Reports may not be the most exciting communication format. But they are important. In order to make smart decisions about budgeting, marketing strategies, product development, and growth strategies–really, any part of your business–you ca not rely on gut feeling alone. That is where a lot of small businesses fail. So we have all got to put together reports. But dont worry–your reports dont have to be boring. By making some simple design choices, you can create reports that actually engage your readers. A well laid out, beautifully designed report can make a great impression on stakeholders–and can help make the information easier to understand!
