    Future Tense

    Hello!

    Is it grammatically correct to use the Future Perfect Tense here:
    We will have prepared a new order related to other goods of your company by April, 2016 and then we will be able to take this order.

    And is it possible to use in the first part of the sentence the Future Simple Tense?
    The phrase "by April, 2016" just made me to use the Future Perfect Tense.

    Wait for your comments.

    Thank you.

    Re: Future Tense

    I'm afraid your sentence doesn't make a great deal of sense to me. Are you able to rephrase it? Are you ordering something or is someone ordering something from you?

    Re: Future Tense

    I order some goods from one company. But they answered that these goods are not available at the moment and will be in stock in April. But I plan to prepare (place) one more order (so there are two orders all in all) by April. That is why I want to say that we will have prepared a new order (second order) related to other goods of your company by April, 2016 and then we will be able to take these orders.
    Should I use "will have prepared" if I want to say that I will really do it?
