  • What would be my answer to his question? – user4084 Jul 16 '19 at 6:06
  • In reality, I would likely respond simply with "Done." – Jason Bassford Jul 16 '19 at 15:07

Past tense or present perfect are both possible and correct here. You could use present perfect to emphasise the idea that "... and you still have access". But other than that you could use either.

You don't say "the" access, and these are not questions, so no question mark.

I've given you access. Please check.

If you were talking to a friend, there would probably be more chat. This short plain speech is more appropriate if you are talking to an engineer.
