    Thank you for your kind correction. I shall appreciate if you kindly review if the “HAS” should be there before “RETIRED” for I feel that though the word is both transitive and intransitive however here it is used as transitive to show that an action was done on him instead he did an action. Maybe my little brain is working otherwise however I shall appreciate if you could again reassure me with your depiction of putting “HAS”. I suppose it should be either as “Mr. ABC has been retired” or “Mr. ABC retired from services”.

    Mr ABC has (recently) retired. <present perfect active>
    Mr ABC has (recently) been fired. <present perfect passive>

    Alternatively,

    Mr ABC is no longer with us/our company.
