I 'd love to say that "seem" is a regular verb just like "appears".
So the preceding sentence can also be written like this :
Your report seems to be quite impressive.
=Your report seems quite impressive.
The reason why 'to be' can be omitted because the adjective "impressive" works as complement to the "report".
I might only explain the parts of the answer.
"Seems" is an intransitive verb. An intransitive verb is one that cannot be made passive, and doesn’t take a direct object.
