    Please advise me whether I can use the following sentence to forward this to a client.
    "Please regret that I could not send you the report yesterday since I was on leave."

    What about?

    My apologies for not sending the report yesterday. I was on leave.

    All the best.

    You can't use that sentence. (The regret is yours. It doesn't belong to the other person.) Instead, use Cas's suggestion. You could also say: "I regret that I couldn't . . . ."
