On its part, the Franchisee also raises tax invoices on the Applicant for the supply of old gold, silver etc., received from the customers. The Applicant intends to settle the mutual debts through book adjustments.
• Unless law specifically restricts recipient from claiming input tax credit when consideration is paid through book adjustment, credit of input tax cannot be denied on this ground alone.
• Thus, applicant can pay consideration for inward supplies by way of setting off book debt. The GST Act and rules made there under do not restrict recipient from claiming input tax credit when consideration is paid through book adjustment, subject to conditions and restrictions as may be prescribed and in manner specified in sections 16 and 49 of the CGST Act, 2017.
