The present perfect tense is used to describe:

1. Something which has just completed (I have finished my dinner)

2. Something which has happened, but still has an effect on what is happening now (Jim has broken his arm)

3. Something which has happened over a long period, but isn’t finished yet (Tom has raced every Saturday for a year)
