    In business, the information provided in reports needs to be easy to find, and written in such a way that the client can understand it. This is one reason why reports are divided into sections clearly labelled with headings and sub-headings. Technical information which would clutter the body of the report is placed in the appendix.

    The structure of a report and the purpose and contents of each section is shown below.

    TITLE PAGE  

    report title
    your name
    submission date

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY  
    overview of subject matter
    methods of analysis
    findings
    recommendations

    TABLE OF CONTENTS  
    list of numbered sections in report and their page numbers

    INTRODUCTION  
    terms of reference
    outline of report’s structure

    BODY  
    headings and sub-headings which reflect the contents of each section. Includes information on method of data collection (if applicable), the findings of the report and discussion of findings in light of theory

    CONCLUSION  
    states the major inferences that can be drawn from the discussion
    makes recommendations

    REFERENCE LIST  
    list of reference material consulted during research for report

    APPENDIX  
    information that supports your analysis but is not essential to its
    explanation

    Hope that helps,
