Introduction

This provision relates to matching, reversal and reclaim of output tax liability due to discrepancy in the output tax reduced by the supplier by way of issuing credit note and corresponding reduction of input tax credit by the recipient. However, the provisions of section 43 shall not be applicable for the financial year 2017-18/18-19 as filing of details in inward supplies in Form GSTR 2 and furnishing a monthly return in Form GSTR 3 has been suspended for an indefinite period. However, still matching of reduction in output tax paid by the supplier and reduction of corresponding input tax credit (If availed earlier) will be verified by revenue authorities by adopting different modes, such as, obtaining details through jurisdiction of the recipient of supply, as the Government will not be ready to forego revenue twice viz., (i) on account of reduction in output tax liability by the supplier by way of issuing credit note; and (ii) availment of input tax credit in full, without reversing credit resulting due to credit note issued by the supplier.

The said reduction in output tax liability can also be possible on account of reduction of output tax liability by the supplier which originally was due to duplication of output tax liability, the procedure as said above would mutatis and mutandis would apply

B. Reduction in output tax liability due to duplication of output liability:

Similarly, where the supplier has paid taxes twice on a particular supply by issuing tax two tax invoices or otherwise and a credit note is issued to rectify the said error, the recipient of supply shall reduce his input tax credit (only if availed credit twice) in the tax period in which such credit note is issued by the supplier and the same is made available to the portal to the recipient. same shall also be accounted by the recipient.
