 I am going to take up a project shortly. The company where the project is located, has acquired an application and wants to do an enhancement.  Primarily my function would be one to study the project scope and arrive at a cost - following which we may be awarded the larger project. 

In my role, I will be studying the current and future state  "business rules" around reporting for this application.

In addition, I will also have to write a high level document of desired business rules - which would be a base for the larger project.  Can someone who has done a similar project guide me, advise me and eloborate on the "business rules"aspect of this work. 

Thanks in advance.

Your project is about scoping and estimating the project. Defining a current and future state. One part of that - and a very small part when you're at the scoping stage - is to define business rules. Personally at the scoping stage I don't think I'd be getting into business rules at all.

Having said that, capturing business rules is simple. Just write them down. Keep a separate business rules register.

Can't help thinking that you're missing the point if you're concentrating on business rules though.

It might help for you to define what you mean by "business rules."  I agree with Kimbo that it seems early to be working at that level of detail which leads me to believe that you may mean something different than what I would call business rules.
