The purpose of this paper is to complete prior studies’ reports related to Partial Least Square-Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM, hereafter) analysis. It is also to provide more specific elements for the academic and practitioner to report the outcome analysis from PLS-SEM using six examples of the PLS-SEM type models. These are the recursive, interaction, intervening, second-order, heterogeneity and multi-group models. Each of the models will be discussed in more detail with all circumstances that ought to be reported in their analysis from other literature recommendations and suggestions. The discussion is divided into two sections using the two-step approach. The two approaches are for: (i) the PLS-SEM outer model and, (ii) the PLS-SEM inner model. For the PLS-SEM outer model, the report statement combined all the model’s types, whereas for the PLS-SEM inner model, the report discusses for each of the model’s types.
