    After checking with the bank, we find the payment has not arrived. Please forward this payment ASAP and notify us when you have done so.

    Is it ok to send the report out?

    That sentence is not correct.

    I am guessing that the intended meaning is 'Is the report ok to send out?' This means 'Is the report good enough to send out?' (for example, the speaker may be wondering if it is finished or if it is well enough done)

    Anglika's sentence is not really/directly questioning the quality of the report; the speaker may be questioning whether this is the appropriate time to send it out or even if it should be sent out at all, mainly for reasons other than its quality.

    That is my interpretation of the possible meanings. Which meaning did you intend?
