Tax liability booked when reverse charge was not applicable

The Reverse Charge Report provides you with the list of all the transactions for which tax is applicable on reverse charge basis. It also displays the summary of tax liability for all the transactions.

You have to record journal vouchers to raise tax liability for the tax on reverse charge before you file your returns.

However, if there is any alteration to the value in the reverse charge transaction, the tax liability booked has to be adjusted accordingly. It is a major concern since you have already booked the tax liability by recording a journal voucher and same appears in your returns. The value of tax liability arising out of reverse charge is reduced for one of the following reasons:

  • The purchase transaction (Imports, Intra GCC purchase and purchase from designated zone) was cancelled.
  • A non-reverse charge applicable transaction was incorrectly record as reverse charge transaction.
  • VAT was paid to customs but Is VAT Paid to Customs? option was not enabled in the transaction.
  • The goods purchased were partially returned.

In all the above cases the reverse charge report will show the reduced tax liability.

Now, you will have to decrease the tax liability booked. The best method to do this is to alter the value in already recorded journal voucher. Drill down from the row for which balance liability is shown in negative to view the journal vouchers recorded for booking tax liability. Alter the transaction to reduce the value as required.
