What Is GST Debit Note?

When the taxable value or tax charged in the original invoice is less than the taxable value or tax due in compliance with such supply, a registered supplier must issue a GST Debit Note to his client. In other words, when a previously issued invoice has been undercharged.

Moreover, a Debit Note is issued when the consumer has received fewer goods than the actual quantity mentioned in the invoice.

Section 34(1) of CGST Act 2017 Rules for Issuing a Debit Note Under GST Regime

Conditions to Issue GST Debit Note

As per the GST law, during trade or commerce, after the invoice has been issued there could be situations like:

  • The supplier has erroneously declared a value that is less than the actual value of the goods or services or both provided.
  • The supplier has erroneously declared a lower tax rate than what is applicable for the kind of goods or services or both supplied.
  • The quantity received by the recipient is more than what has been declared in the tax invoice.
  • Any other similar reasons.

To regularize these kinds of situations, the supplier is allowed to issue a document called a debit note to the recipient. Once the debit note has been issued, the tax liability of the supplier will increase.
