Business reports are used to communicate past work while proposals are used to pitch ideas or future plans. No matter the subject, the content of business reports should be co…mplete, properly documented, objective, written clearly and error-free. Ensuring that the document matches the assigned requirements and careful proofreading can save a report writer time, money and frustration. Annual Reports Annual reports are one of the better known types of business communications. Public companies are required by the Securities and Exchange Commission to draft and distribute an annual report with financial information to stakeholders. Privately held companies or associations may also issue an annual report to employees, stakeholder groups or volunteer boards of directors. In addition to financial information, these reports include an overview of the past year, including new products released, milestones achieved or communication campaigns launched. Project Reports A project report updates management, team members or a client on the status of an assignment or undertaking. Reports may be assigned at regular intervals or conducted by request. Effect report writing requires the author to strike an appropriate balance of "need to know" information with supporting detail. For example, a report on the development of a new website intended for the CEO should be organized with the main points first combined with any calls or requests for action. Including every single detail covering all twists and turns of the project will frustrate the reader and may cause him to question the thinking behind the project.

A research report includes an abstract that summarizes the problem researched and its solutions, a summary of the method used during the research, the results of the research and a conclusion or discussion section that outlines recommendations. The size of the report will depend on the complexity of the research project. Statutory or Required Reports Statutory reports detail a company's compliance with federal, state or local laws. Although filed with a governing agency, some statutory reports may be available to the public. Types of reports required will depend on the size and type of company and its location. Types of statutory reports include how a company is meeting mandated accounting, human resource, health or environmental law

There are three main types of business organizations: (a) Sole Proprietorship (b) Partnership (c) Corporation Sole Proprie…torship In a sole proprietorship, an individual on his/her own account carries out the business or profession. No formal procedure is required for setting up a sole proprietary concern. Partnership A partnership is a business relationship entered into by a formal agreement between two or more persons or corporations carrying on a business in common. The capital for a partnership is provided by the partners who are liable for the total debts of the firms and who share the profits and losses of the firm according to the terms of their agreement. Partnerships (other than banking companies) are generally limited in size to twenty partners. The interest of a partner is transferable only with the prior consent of the other partner(s). However, a partner's right to a share of the partnership income may be received in trust for another person. Generally they are formed to pool resources and/or to retain experienced and talented employees. Corporation A corporation is a legal entity that has most of the rights and duties of a natural person but with perpetual life and limited liability. Shareholders of a corporation appoint a board of directors and the board of directors appoints the officers for the corporation, who have the authority to manage the day-to-day operations of the corporation. Share holders are generally liable for the amount of their investment in corporate stock and their personal property is immune from claims against the corporation-thus, their liability is limited. A corporation pays its own taxes and shareholders pay tax on their dividends. The corporation is its own legal entity and can survive the death of its owners and shareholders. A corporation is the best entity for eventual public companies. Corporations can raise capital through the sale of stock and stockholders are free to transfer their ownership. Corporations hold annual meetings and require directors to observe certain formalities. They are more expensive and complicated to form and require periodic filings with the state and also require annual fees. Private corporations can only sell their stock privately, though, there may be some restrictions on the number of their stockholders. In case of a subchapter S corporation, shareholders report their share of corporate profit or loss in their individual tax return. There are several other variations of corporations formed under the laws of the state where they are registered. There are more than 3 million corporations in the U.S.A.-largest being known as Fortune 500-which constitute about 20 percent of the total firms but more than 90 percent of total sales. There are about 11 million sole proprietorships but represent only 6 percent of the sales. Partnerships are about 1.5 in numbers and have the smallest-4 percent--share of the total sales.
Growth of the organism happens by mitosis. Moisture helps the cells divide. However, the spores must also be attached to something that will provide food for them. They cann…ot produce their own food. When the spore has enough moisture and food provided for it, mitosis continues and the spore grows into an adult organism.
Three main functional areas of a bsiness are HR (Human Resource) very important if you want to address the needs of your employees as well as managing company staffing require…ments. Administration is another, needed for the day to day running of the office and usually first contact with the customers. The third area is R&D (Research and Development), this is a major part of any successful company, as development is the future and without it their is no future.
Using a diagram briefly explain the layout and functioning of a nuclear power station In your answer refer to the three separate water circuits?
The three water circuits in the nuclear plant are the primary coolant, the secondary or main steam circuit, and the tertiary or condenser cooling system. Below is link to a fa…irly clear diagram that has all three water circuits in it. Look at the diagram as we give you the scoop one loop at a time. Primary coolant is circulated (forced by the main coolant pumps) through the reactor core to pick up heat. This hot primary coolant is circulated through that steam generator where it boils secondary water to create steam. The primary coolant leaves the steam generator cooler than when it went in (but still hot!), and then returns to the reactor's pressure vessel (where the reactor core is housed) to be reheated. It's a closed loop. In the secondary or main steam system, the feedwater turns to steam in the steam generator. It then leaves that steam generator and goes through the main steam header to the big steam turbines that drive the electric generators. In the main condenser below the steam turbine, the steam condenses back into water as the condenser cooling water circulates through the condenser. The water that used to be steam is now feedwater, and it's pumped back into the steam generator to begin the steam cycle again. The condenser cooling water that cooled the exhaust steam to convert it back to water is pumped out into a heat exchanger (evaporative cooling tower). Thus cooled there, the main condenser cooling water is pumped back into the main condenser to remove heat from the exhaust steam to convert it back to water. This completes the main condenser cooling cycle. A link below will lead you to a fairly clear diagram with the three cooling circuits in it. With a bit of jumping between the explanation and the diagram, you should be able to see everything clearly.
