    present or present perfect tense?

    1) We will not be able to proceed with the applications untilwe have received your money.

    2) We will not be able to proceed with the applications untilwe received your money.

    May I know which is correct and what's the difference between those two?

    Welcome to the forums, Disillusia. If you change "received" to receive" in #2, they will both be correct. There is no real difference in meaning.
