    Hi RedMtl,

    Thank you for your correction. I have some query for your sentence #2

    We will collect the original PO tomorrow. Please contact Ms. Irene for the next order collection. I will be remaining as her assistant, should you require further assistance.

    why to use remaining, but not remains ?

    Thanks to advise

    Regards
    Zoe

    Re: please help

    Needed is correct - I was concentrating on clarifying what Zoe might have meant by "I also will assistance".

    No - the need is a possible future need, not something in the past.
