Once this is done, the recipient’s input tax credit will be reversed to the extent of the credit note and the supplier’s tax liability will also be correspondingly reduced.
Please note that a credit note can also be issued by the recipient of a supply, in cases such as when the taxable value shown in an invoice for an inward supply is less than the actual, or, tax charged for an inward supply is less than the actual. However, in these cases, revision in the values of an invoice will only be considered when a supplier issues a corresponding debit note for the supply. The details of a debit note issued have to be furnished by the supplier and the same has to be accepted by the recipient. Subsequently, the tax liability of the supplier and input tax credit of the recipient will be modified accordingly.
