    I'm putting together a business plan, and I'm eventually going to have to write it out. Does anyone have any advice on what the structure of a business plan report should look like?

    You may search them in Google.

    Else, you may try writing in your own style. The business plan should contain date, subject, and the explanation with diagram. It should not be hard if you have tried writing projects for anything. All the best for your business plan writing.

    There are so many companies that provide very low cost business analytical tools to make your business plans fool proof and data supported. With these tools, you may track the results also.

    Go to the microsoft office templates and type in business plan, you will come accross a decent 31 page plan which actually tells you what all the sections are that you will need to fill in and gives you an e.g. of how to go about answering these questions / headings.

    I suggest write it on your desired format. I make business plan report on my desired format too so that I can understand it easily all the details I've put there on my report.
