I search through some pages and find that both will work. Is it so? How?

  • You can't answer "When did you last visit San Francisco?" with "I have been not [there]." And you can't say "I have been not well." Are you referring to longer auxiliary constructions? – Edwin Ashworth Oct 12 '17 at 15:49
  • Not for longer auxiliary constructions. – Chaudhary Bilal Javaid Sahi Oct 12 '17 at 17:41

You use it when you need to and you do not use has been not.

Example:

I have been working.

or

I have not got the chance to work today.

You really don't need to use has been not. Use have not instead.

  • Huh? You absolutely need to use "has not" when using third person pronouns like he or she. "She has not had the chance to work today." – KumaAra Oct 13 '17 at 1:20
